Today is my grandmother's 90th birthday. She is my mother's mother and the only grandmother I have had in my life for quite some time. My father's mother passed away when I was 6.
She's a tiny lady but she's been a very strong woman all of her life. She has outlived all of her siblings and still lives alone. I admire her will to be independent even as she weakens with age. I look back and I can remember both her 70th and 80th birthdays. I can't believe how old we are all getting! I'm the youngest grandchild on that side of the family. =)
Here are some pictures from her party this past weekend:
Still having my grandmother around makes me high on life!
