Happy Birthday, Grandma

Happy Birthday, Grandma!!

January 8, 1922 - November 27, 2005.

Hope all is well where you are. Have you met Elvis yet? His birthday is today, too. Say hello to all your brothers and sisters and your Mom and Dad. We're taking good care of Grandpa for you. We talk to him every night except Sunday and his hearing is really good now....unless it's about something he doesn't want to talk about and then he can't hear squat even if Mom spells it out for him.

Mom says sometimes when she passes a mirror she catches a glimpse of you in the reflection. I guess that means you're keeping an eye on her. Or maybe that she's getting more like you as she gets older?? Funny how those things go.

I'm keeping up my diary so you can see what's going on in my life....and Mom's life, too, I guess, because we're always together. I think you'd be very proud of your Granddaughters Melissa and Colleen, and your GrandKids Randy, Cade, Carter, Cailin and Clancy. C, C, C, and C are all doing well in school and they have so many options ahead of them that they are sure to make a great contribution to the world. R is out of school and he seems to be pretty much meeting his personal goals for the moment so he's ok, too. You have to respect anyone who is true to themselves.

We should talk like this more often.  Humans get so caught up in their lives that they don't make the time they should to visit with their family and other loved ones.  At the end of it all, I wonder if they'll wish they had re-arranged their priorities?  Only then it will be too late and all the stuff they thought was so important won't matter any more, will it?

Love, hugs and schlurps....
