Happy Birthday Grammy

Yesterday was Grammy's birthday. I decided to ask the girls what they liked best about Grammy.
Abi said:
- The way Grammy reads us stories
- Grammy's kisses & hugs
- Her face
- How she sings to us
Jillian said:
- Her food
- Her stories
- How she tucks us in at night
- How she plays with us

I am sure Stella, Chloe & Claire would have some similar compliments. Even when we lived in the Dominican Republic and did not see Grammy often, when we were with Grammy you girls were always drawn to her. Grammy was always one of the first people you met after you were born, and a special bond was formed with each of you girls & Grammy. It is fun to watch.
Now that I am a mommy I cannot begin to express to you girls how much I have learned from & would like to emulate Grammy. Now, Grammy isn't perfect - no mother is (in fact Grammy has chuckled many times when I tell her of your antics and I think she has given you some candy/treats when I have said NO) - but Grammy has chosen to leave us a rich heritage. A legacy of love, service, and sacrifice - all because she is in love with Jesus. I know Grammy prays daily for you girls, and I am pretty sure her top prayer for you is that you will love the Lord your God with all of your mind, heart, body & soul. I am grateful for Grammy's prayers, and I know you will be too one day. I am blessed with a Godly mother, and you girls are blessed with a Godly grandmother. A woman who has chosen to follow God, serve Jesus, and be filled with the Holy Spirit. Grammy would joke and say that she has nothing to leave us materially after she is gone, but the legacy she is giving us is more valuable than anything on this earth. You are blessed girls to have the love, example, prayers, support, wisdom, and so much more of Godly Grandmother. Happy Birthday Grammy!

I can't wait to see my Grammy again a/k/a Fat Granny. It has been 5 years since she passed and I miss her just the same!
