The Most Beautiful Woman I Know

The most beautiful woman I know had her 88th birthday today. My grandmother. Her gentle spirit and sense of humor, her steadiness and love have made her the heart of our extended family. I am graced beyond my own comprehension to know her, to visit with her, run errands with her, clean house with her and to sit in her presence. She is beautiful past measure.

I'm sorry, Joyella. Good grandmothers are gifts, aren't they?

Hehe ... yeah, huuray for grandmas! I'll do anything for her knowing how grateful she is for all my help and the love she returns! I hope your granny had a splendid day and managed to blow out all her 88 candles on her birthday - cake in say one go!!! xxx Astrid.

Hi, Astrid! Grandma had a lovely birthday, although I think she'd get tickled trying to imagine herself blowing out 88 candles. :)
