I love my Grandma!


God blessed me with the best grandma.

Today we are taking a drive down to see her. Paul has court in the Bay Area so we are all tagging along to hang out with Grandma Cuckoo, as we lovingly call her.

She will be eighty-nine in March and is already bragging about her big 90th birthday bash.


How about you? Anyone out there blessed with a Grandma like mine?

Unfortunately my moms parent's both died before I was born as did my dads mom. I knew my dads father but he was pretty old already when I was born so I never knew him very well.
I am thrilled however that my kids have Grandparents on both sides to love on them!!

I was raised by my Grandma, so she is a huge part of my heart! I'm more like her than I care to admit, which is both good and bad. ;) She will be 80 in March and I have a post (complete with her graduation picture) all set up for it! I saw this blinkie a few years ago that said, "Grandma's are just antique little girls" and I couldn't have said it better.

I would say that your gram looks really good for her age. Those eyes just sparkle. I know she was thrilled to have a visit from you!

Both of my Grandmas had passed by the time I was 4. My Grandpa was pretty cool - still riding a motorcycle when he was 80. He passed away when I was 20.

Oh, my goodness..... Grandmas are just the best! I have been blessed with two of the bestest grandmothers. And, I am further blessed as they are both still living.

Enjoy your time with her!

Enjoy your visit! I was blessed to grow up with the most amazing Great-Grandparents and I have such sweet memories of taking the 2 hour drive west to see them in their small town. It ends up that my husband's roommate in college ended up being from that small town. What are the chances? So, now, we go and visit him and his family and I reflect on my childhood memories of visiting my 'greats' and that town as a child. We drive by their house and then go to the cemetary to 'visit' them also. It's pretty neat the way God placed my husband's friend in our lives so my memories could live on.

My son is extremely fortunate. He has 6 (yes SIX) Great-Grandparents!!!!!! My G&G on my side, my other Grandma on my side and my husbands 2 grandmas on his side. What a blessing it is to have them in our lives and for Owen to see!

My mom's mom passed away when I was a child, but my dad's mom lived to 94. I visited her in Florida about 3 weeks before she died. She was in a nursing home and had dementia, but (to make a long story short) miraculously she communicated to me that she had accepted the Lord - a Jewish 94 year old woman with dementia met Jesus in a nursing home! She called my name to come close, put her hand over her heart and said "Jesus, glory, glory". Ever wonder if God can reach a person that seems hopeless? I can testify that God can certainly meet anyone, anywhere, anytime. Halleluia!

Unfortunately,I didn't have grandparents. They had all passed away by the time I was born. Your grandma looks like a wonderful person,and I am so glad you have her and will always have memories of her.
Blessings,
Michelle

Grandparents are special. We have been without ours for many years now. You are very blessed to have such a wonderful grandma!

You are so blessed to still have your wonderful grandma! Mine are both tucked safely in the arms of Jesus.

Sad to say Nope! I didn't know either of my grandmothers very well! My mother is going to be 81 this year so you can see my mother and your grandmother are contemporaries!!!!
