  • "Family life is full of major and minor crises -- the ups and downs of health, success and failure in career, marriage, and divorce -- and all kinds of characters. It is tied to places and events and histories. With all of these felt details, life etches itself into memory and personality. It's difficult to imagine anything more nourishing to the soul." -Thomas Moore

90 years of life

pic437.jpg She has seen much in her 90 years.  Today is my grandmother’s birthday.  We haven’t always gotten along.  I wish we had, since she is my only living grandparent, and has been since I was 11.  But she is not that type of person.

I was thinking today about some of the things she has lived through ….

-She was born at the beginning of WWI, and has seen many more (her own family fighting to defend this country).

-She was a young girl during the depression

-She saw more things invented and still used today than I can even count.

-She saw her husband and one of her sons die, as well as all but one of her siblings.  There is only her and the baby of the family left.

-She has seen 9 grandchildren come into this world, and at least double that in great granchildren.

-She worked until she was forced by age not to.

Happy Birthday Gram.
