- A young South African man recently headed online to share a picture of the sweet note his loving niece wrote to him before school
- In the note, his niece explains that he is just like a dad to her and this is something she appreciates a lot
- Soon many South Africans were in the comment section commending the uncle for playing such an important role in his niece's life
Being there for a child is not only fulfilling for the child but for the adult too. A local uncle with the Twitter handle @AbestarR proved this to be the case after he shared a picture of the adorable note he got from his niece.
In the letter, the presumably young girl explains how she was always under the impression that he was her dad. She also goes on to thank him for always making sure she is as happy as can be, ending it off by saying how much she loves him.
"Dear Uncle Abs, I have been thinking that you are my dad, but you gave me the love my father couldn't give me. So I would like to thank you for all the happiness that you filled my life with. So I love you, Uncle Abs."
Locals had this to say about the sweet post:
"Please change your handle to Uncle Abs."
"A parent isn't just a person who biologically birthed someone but also a person who nurtures someone; Truth be told in some cases, friends & strangers show more love than one's immediate family. Being genuinely loved by one's family & friends despite one's flaws is priceless."
In similar heartwarming Briefly.co.za news, @Tsontsa_G shared an image of a hilarious letter a child sent to their parents. Thato wrote an invoice out for his/her parents for an amount of R350. The invoice, numbered 007, was written in email format.
From names of the recipient and subject to a formal 'Kind regards' at the end, Thato's letter had Mzansi shook as they didn't realise how smart kids really are. @Tsontsa_G's post gained over 2000 likes on Twitter.
SAns shared some equally funny posts about Thato's payment that needed to be received as a matter of urgency. Many of them took to the comment section to share their thoughts on the adorable note.
