90!

 Happy 90th Birthday Grandma!

I am so glad that God made you, and delivered you into this world 90 years ago today. 
I admire you.  
You are gracious.
You are thoughtful with your words.
You always speak of your delight for your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
I recall meeting you for the first time. I mentioned to Michael, I already loved your family, but your Grandmother seals the deal!  Over the years you have delighted in me as if I were your own grand-daughter.  What a treasure it is to be Your family. 
You are generous with your life and have been intentional about
making memories with us at every opportunity
(Laguna Beach, lunch outings followed by swim play at your house, Yosemite at Christmas followed by lunch at the Awahanee Hotel, and more).
I love your sense of adventure and that you have traveled so much of the world. 
I especially thought it was beautiful that you took your grown daughters to Paris 
(I look forward to the day I can follow your example and do the same with my grown-up girls, when I will steal them away from their busy lives and make them only mine again. I will tell them I am following their Great Grandmother's example).
You are beautiful. 
The years added to your life make you more beautiful, more gracious. more loved (I hope my own family will be able to say the same about me). 
Recently you shared with me that Psalm 23 are your favorite verses. 
I celebrate those verses with you, and find comfort in God who is our good Shepherd, who knows us,  guides us, comforts us, and spills the abundance of His love onto us. 
God blessed each of us by making us yours. 
I Love you.
