Happy 90th Birthday Grandma!

2.10.2010


[Four generations of family.]

My Grandma turned 90 years old yesterday. She is hands down the most amazing woman that I have ever known. I am so thankful for all the memories, the stories and the wisdom that has been passed down to me from this woman. One of the most amazing things that I often think about when I think of her is how she was raised by only her father and on a farm out in a very rural area in the country in south central Wisconsin...and how she is the absolute definition of what it is to be a successful home-maker and what it is and takes to raise a beautiful family. She has done so much in this life and if anything, I want to just attempt to follow in her footsteps and in doing just that I know that I will have lived a full life.

Here is a picture of the latest quilt that she made for me...this one was my Christmas gift from this year. Including the baby quilts that she made for me many, many, many, years ago I think I own at least seven handmade quilts of hers. These are the most treasured gifts...they are beautiful, handmade, meaningful, practical and used! I hope that one day I will be able to pass these on to Zoey and her family.

I miss you Grandma and wish I could be there with you to give you a BIG hug...I love you to pieces! Happy Birthday!

You are so lucky.

I lost both my grandmothers to early. I didn't even get to meet one of them as she passed when my mom was 15.

She is so talented, that is a beautiful quilt.
