Happy 90th Birthday Grandma!

My grandmother turns 90 years old today!


So, what was going on in 1923?

Ninety years. That's a long time! Just think, she's been through the Depression, World War II, the Cold War in its entirety, the beginning of space travel...not to mention the invention of the television, the computer, cell phone, all sorts of technology. What she must think about how times have changed.


For those of you who don't know, I lived with my grandmother growing up - she was my second mom. While we didn't always get along when I was younger, I now love talking to her about when she was a child and what she remembers about our family from back then. She's the oldest one of her siblings still living and I know she may not have that much time left so I try to enjoy her company as much as I can. I'm so glad that she has gotten the opportunity to meet her great-grandchildren too. Not everyone can say they met their great-grandmother.


Happy Birthday Grandma!
