Happy Birthday Grandma

Today is a very special day.  It is the eighty third birthday of a truly amazing woman and grandmother - mine.  Betty is the smartest, most glamorous, most generous woman I know.  Her heart is full of love for her nine grandchildren and her great granddaughter, and she is anxiously anticipating the arrival of a great grandson. She has been my strongest supporter in good times and has been my rock in some of the worst times you could imagine. Her love and devotion is unwavering. I have learned to listen to her advice and appreciate her wisdom - it is a resource many people do not have access to. Although I wish I could be with her today I know she is in good hands with my Aunt, Uncle and cousins in the Boston area.  I know they will make her day as special as she is.  Happy Birthday, Grandma.  We love you to the moon and back!

At 83 she's still got "it"!

  1. My 'Gammy' was 83 when she left us after a lifetime of great living. She met one of her 5 husbands (all died) after sliding down a bannister at a dance into his arms. I get my zest for life from her. And, her name was Betty.

    Your grandmother looks like a kick to be around.
