90 Years Young

I know, I know everyone says this but really I have the greatest grandmother in the whole wide world. For starters she has faith that can move mountains. No really. There are so many things I admire about her but I would have to say that her faith in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is top of the list. You can always count on her to be praying for you any day of the year.

It is hard to believe that she is 90. No one does. Her beauty is far greater than that of her precious youthful face. It goes way deeper. She just has this way about her. A gentle, kind and loving spirit that shines through her in a way that just makes you feel like the most special person in the world. We have so many memories over the years and I am looking forward to many more. I love that we have all kinds of little inside jokes like little school girls. "Wake up a little Susie" or Granny Goose. I simply adore her and treasure every last minute we are blessed to spend with her.

This photo was taken of her on her actual 90th Birthday (July 6, 2010). Crazy, huh? She doesn't even look close to 90. In fact many people in her life don't even know this tid bit of information. She still loves to drive, still has a job, still lives on her own, and she even has a roommate. She is very involved at her church. She loves to play cards (hates to lose) and is an unbelievable cook (she makes a mean tamale). But her favorite thing to do is spend time with her family, showering them with love and gifts.
She is a beautiful mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, Aunt, friend.
She touches every life she comes into contact with.My mom & Uncle Joe have been planning her surprise 90th Birthday party for some time. Tony & I were in charge of getting her to the restaurant. This was not an easy task as she is still very sharp but we managed to pull it off and boy was she surprised.
You could truly see how much she is loved by everyone who came to celebrate her life. It was a day she will never forget!
Happy 90th Birthday, Granny! We love you with all our hearts.
Love, Tony & Danny
