This month, on April 5 was my Grandmother's 95th birthday. I tease her, "Grandma, how old is dirt? Is dirt 95 years old?"
When it was time to get ready for her party, she picked out her outfit. I love the color, the accessories, and mostly her smile outlined in lipstick (see below).
The only two things that she wanted for her birthday were candles, which she lights when she says her prayers, and "wrinkle cream". Isn't that a hoot? Does wrinkle cream work on 95 years?
Throughout the whole night, as she was eating and drinking her wine flips, she looked radiant. Even when the venue closed, and the after-party took place, she was there. Her energy amazes me!
When it was time for bed, I helped her get ready. Part of that includes saying prayers. Do you know that she still gets down on her 95 year old knees to say the rosary? My knees were uncomfortable....
As I was tucking her in, she said, "Let's see. Today I'm 95," as she started counting on her fingers, "96-97-98-99-100. I have 5 more years to go before I'll see Grandpa Charles and Uncle Mike."
She is such an AMAZING woman. If you have a Grandma or Grandpa story, please share it with me here or on Facebook.
