Words for the Weekend

Grandmas are moms with lots of frosting.
~Author Unknown~

This week my great grandmother turned 98!
It's truly a blessing and amazing to be able to take care of and spend time with her each day.  
She has always been such an inspiration to me, being a widow at only 40, raising 4 children and make a living. She never remarried and gave all her love to her family and friends. 
An avid gardener and bird lover, a florist and a cook.
One of the most important things I've learned from her is that the secret to a long life is eating honey nut cheerios everyday :) (bet you weren't expecting that!)
Take time today to tell you're grandmas that you love them and that they add that special touch of sparkle and frosting to your life. 

Happy weekend!
