My Grandmother Turns 87

14 October 2007

My Grandma

My grandma is such an adorable and lovely old lady.

She’s got such a happy spirit – happy to be surrounded by her huge family (she had 10 children); so happy to be up and about, cooking, celebrating, eating cake; and particularly happy for all her GREAT-grandchildren to blow out the candles for her!

She’s been without her husband for more than 10 years now, yet she still radiates strength and smiles.

In the midst of her humble wealth – good health, surrounded by a loving family and a beautiful garden – I find myself aspiring to be just like her when I’m that age.
