Happy, happy birthday, Mamaw!!!

My dear, sweet, precious 98 years young today.

I talked to my cousin for a bit yesterday and he described her as his "hero". I guess you would have to understand our family a bit better to really appreciate that comment...but I completely knew what he was talking about. I can't imagine another grandmother being loved any better than she is!!! When she was able to cook...that was her favorite thing in the world to do....and she did it better than anybody we've ever known.

As many of us that can will gather at her house to let her know how much we love her.

Early 2007 - not long after Little Bit was of my favorite pictures.

Taken the last year she was able to cook Christmas Eve dinner for us...making biscuits!!!

Happy, happy 98th birthday to our precious Mamaw!!!

(and what a coincidence that her birthday is also Grandparent's Day!!!)

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!
