Ninety

My Grandma turned ninety this month!  And she looks fantastic!  I am pretty sure I know her secret, ladies take note…attitude!  My grandma is one of the most positive, uplifting, loving people I know and she has a great attitude about everything.  I truly believe that a lot of faith, courage, and a positive attitude can go a loooong way.  She is very social and loves to spend time with family and all her friends.  For as long as I can remember she has always loved playing cards and she still does.  She has an infectious laugh and a twinkle in her eye.  I have a feeling that if we were the same age we would have been good friends, but I would much rather have her as a grandma, she is pretty special.

I hope that I can live my life with the same positive outlook and attitude that she does.  I mean how many ninety year olds do you know that are talking about redecorating their living room,  “The walls need some color, new drapes and couch“.   She is such an inspiration

My mom, Jacob and I drove in to see her on her birthday.  We had lunch with her and all her girlfriends.  Grandma brought a bottle of wine for everyone at our table and got cake for everybody in the retirement home where she lives. It was so fun to see her interact with the staff and other residents, they all love her and she was showered with gifts, cards, balloons and lots and lots of hugs and birthday wishes.  It was a special day.

After lunch we went back to her apartment where she snuggled with Jacob for a while and opened up her birthday cards and gifts

That weekend, my aunt and uncle hosted a big party with all the family and friends of the family to celebrate her birthday.  The party was on the day of my moms birthday so we celebrated her too!
