Happy Birthday To "My Sweet Granny!"










































Granny is 95 years old today! Her children had a very small party for her. There were just a few people there. She says too many people makes her nervous. I took a lot of pictures of her. She hates to get her picture took but she knows that I am going to take them anyway. We went to a restaurant for lunch and then went to her house for cake. I heard several stories about her that I had not heard before. I heard that she calls her quilts, "prayer quilts"! I knew that she was a prayer warrior! I heard that her middle name is "Mossy" and the kids used to call her "Bossy"! They asked Granny her secret to living so long, and staying so strong and she said, "Prayer." They told us all not to bring gifts, but I could not go without taking something. I took her 3 spools of white thread and 3 prefilled bobbins. You would have thought that I had gave her a million dollars! She was so excited! Can you tell I love to take pictures of Granny's feet? Did you see her praising the Lord? Do you see the picture with me, my dad and Granny? In the background, is my dads brother. Do you see the picture with me and my aunt. I was told all of my life that I look just like her. I only wish that was true. She is beautiful! See the quilt that me and granny are holding--that is the quilt that I helped her roll to get it ready to sew this past week. I really enjoyed getting to see several of my cousins, along with aunts & uncles and of course, my dad! I even gave my blog address to one of my favorite cousins! When I left, it was about 5 p.m., and Granny whispered to me that she was ready to put her pajamas on. She goes to bed at 7 p.m., so I am sure that she was getting tired. I am so glad to have my Granny with me this long. 95 years old!! That is really something! She is really something! Happy Birthday Granny!

Happy birthday to Granny! She is a jewel, and one of the finest people I know! She is exactly what you see, a sweet, kind, loving, and precious lady whose life has always epitomized perfection and kindness to everyone. She was my Mother's best friend, when Mama was still with us.
Love, Mom

How wonderful that Granny is still so amazingly well to celebrate her 95th birthday with a party and is still quilting. Wishing her nothing but the best for each and every day of her life. That cake looks so yummy! Beauty runs in both sides of your family with your Granny, your aunt, your mother, and you and your daughters and granddaughters - all of you are so beautiful. Congratulations to Granny on her 95th!
