The number of years this world has been blessed with my Grandmother's presence.

The number of years I have been blessed to have her for my Grandmother.
My Grandmother.......

...has three children
...has 8 grandchildren
...has 9 great grandchildren
....still attends church many times a week
....is a huge part of her church band
....refers to retirement homes as "old people" homes
....plays at "old people homes" with her church band
....drives a sporty car

....is the kindest, most caring human being you will ever know
I am blessed to have her in my world.
Happy Birthday Grandma.

Your grandma sounds amazing. That's how I'd like to be when I'm a grandma. Old is 102, right? She's got 20 more years to go!
