09.01.2011 / Happy Birthday


This my grandma.  Isnt’ she a beauty?  Today is her birthday and I’m so grateful for her.  I don’t get to see my grandma often but when I do, our time together is precious.  She was visiting a couple of weeks ago and I truly treasured our time together.  I’m so grateful for the days we had together.

There are so many great things I could tell you about my grandma.   For starters, she is one of the smartest women [people for that matter] that I know.  She is strong, caring, loving and loyal.  She is one of the best listeners that I know and always offers solid advice.  Conversations with her are always intelligent and interesting.

Her story is one of hope.  And her later years have been spent helping people in very bad situations.  To say I admire her is an understatement.

People say we are a lot a like.  And I’ve been told I do this or do that in the same manner she does without ever having known it.  And I have to tell you, I take it all as a compliment.

Although, I don’t get to spend my day to days near my grandma.  I hope that today she knows how very much she is loved and how very much I admire her.

Happy Birthday Grandma!  I love you dearly!

Ahhhh Happy Birthday from me too, I love the red it so suits your grandmar she looks lovely & sounds wonderful so glad you are having a good day together :)) My grandmar (I called her Nanny) was gorgeous too she used to run errands for her friend & go sit & look after them & they were probably 20 years younger, bless her she is missed but at 101 I think she got tired so I was blessed to have her in my life for so long have a great weekend Trina
