Wednesday Gratitude & White Wednesday

My grandmother "Baba" turned 80 last weekend and this was one of the beautiful arrangments that arrived at her house.
How grateful I am to still have my grandmother at her age. She is an amazing woman and the glue to our family. We all sat around and told stories about how she influenced each of our lives.



It was also my brother's birthday weekend. He received a different kind of flower arrangement (which I think is great!) It is carnations in a mug full of yellow glass stones, water, and a little foam looking stuff at the top (meant to resemble a beer or a float).

How wonderful you were all able to be together for the 80th birthday! My grandparents and great aunt and uncle are all coming for dinner on Sunday - they range in ages from 83-87. We all grew up here in the same town and I never get tired of hearing their stories.

How fortunate to still have her! My grandmother passed away in the 60's and I still think of her constantly and will always miss her.

Thank you for sharing!

That's so nice, your Grandma's a cutie. I never really knew my grandmothers so I understand how special it is that you are able to spend time with yours. I cherish the time we have together with my husband's family, and so grateful that my girls have gronwn up knowing their cousins. They are best friends, and that's a bond that won't ever be broken.
Thanks for linking up today. Have a wonderful week.
