Happy Birthday!

Today is the birthday of Lance's maternal Grandma - affectionately known as "Grandma Stone". She is 83 today and is one of the youngest 83 yr olds I know. She has babysat almost all of her great grandkids from birth. She gardens, is active in her church's senior citizen group, and loves "gospel singins". She along with Lance's granny have filled a special role in my life. My grandfathers both passed on before I could know them. My maternal grandmother had mental health issues and couldn't sustain a relationship with us. My paternal grandmother was a good woman and loved me immensely, but she died when I was 16. I have adopted Grandma Stone and Granny as my own. I'm grateful to have them in my life. They provide humor and love and enrich our lives so. Grandma Stone is a ruthless game player and will challenge anyone. She is spunky and feisty and I love to visit with her.

Have a great day Grandma Stone - I love you!

Grandparent relationship are so very special and precious! All 4 of mine have been gone for some time, none ever knew my kids. I have enjoyed and felt blessed to have Steve's grandparents in my life. Both of his grandmas are still with us.
