Today would have been…
my Gram’s 87th birthday. I imagine her in heaven today (where ever, or whatever that may be) partying down with her sisters and brother, her parents and her husband, her son and her grandparents, to celebrate her “her-ness” in fine style. I’m sure her sister, my indomitable Auntie Dottie, (otherwise known as Mary, Mary Dorothy, or Doris, depending on with whom you spoke…) has organized quite a fete for her. While I celebrate her presence among the saints, and the song of her life in my heart, I am still sad and missing her physical presence. But such, I guess, is life.
On a happier note, today is also the birthday of my favorite Aunt. She knows who she is, and she’s contributed a few funnies which I’ve posted here for all our enjoyment.
So – Bon Anniversaire to all those I know and love who have or had birthdays today, and even to those I don’t know! Here’s to all of you!
