Happy Birthday Grandma!

It's my Grandma's birthday tomorrow and well, my Grandma is the smartest, sharpest 81 year old I know, but she doesn't have computer so she will likely never see this unless my sister or my mom or dad show her - but I just had to take a moment to share with the blogosphere how much I love that lady!

I think I'm probably more like my Grandma than anyone else I know (or at least I'd like to think I am ). She's a kindred spirit and I just treasure all the similarities that we share . I can hardly believe she is turning 81 - she's the most youthful, quick witted 81 year old I've ever known. She's amazing really! In a thank you card that she ALREADY wrote me, she told me that she was turning 81 years young - how cute is that?! And you know what I just adore about her (one of a bazillion things)? Even though she is 81 and has pretty much seen it all - she still has this child-like curiosity and wonder inside of her - it's such a breath of fresh air to witness her genuine zest for life. I know this quality has played a huge role in keeping her young and healthy.

I hope she knows how grateful I am for her and what a powerful impact she has had on me by being the person that she is.

I love you Grandma! Happy, happy Birthday!

Okay, once again, I am crying reading this! I love your sweet Grandma and the love that you two share. I was the same with my Grandma. I know I don't have to tell you...but cherish every second!
