Today is my Grammy Poe's birthday. She is 85 and still going strong. Until this year, she still mowed her yard! She was here for a visit this winter and was a huge help when we were all sick. I think she might have the best immune system I've ever seen. All 6 of us were sick and she had a few sniffles. Amazing.
As a mother of 2 daughters, I'm sure that she never expected to see so many babies in future generations. She has spent almost half of her life as a grandmother and now a great-grandmother to 13. Five of those great-grandkids arrived within 8 months and after my grandfather passed.
She has handled being a widow with such grace and strength. I'm sure being a preacher's wife for all of those years was good training. She is so spiritually grounded, she can handle almost anything.
I hope you have a wonderful day and many more birthdays to come.
