A Special Lady

Today, in just a few short hours, my family will be celebrating my grandmother’s 93rd birthday over in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.  I couldn’t  be there, but wanted to send her some happy birthday wishes.

Isn’t she beautiful? 

 Her name is Mattie Dimple Calico.  If that isn’t the best name in the world, I don’t know what is. 

She’s a gem. 

The older I get, the more I realize how important family is.  I cherish my grandmother and the memories I have of our times together.

Happy 93rd Grannie! 

I am so thankful to be blessed with you in my life. 

You’re a hoot and a tough old coot, and you’re always making me laugh.  

 I hope when I am old, I look and feel just like you!

I love you!

    Yes, she is beautiful and always dressed up! Still wears 3″ high hill shoes! At least she had them on at Juggie and Veltas’s 50th anniversary! The thing I so much admire is that she can still SQUAT!!!!!!!! No arthrites!

    I miss my Granny, and she has only been gone a few days now. We must get together soon and trade “Granny” stories, Angel.

    Love it. Reminds me of my nan Betty B. We celebrated her 85th a few weeks ago. I’m the oldest of 13 grandkids and she has 8 kids of her own. As the celebration wound down she stood up and told us how lucky she was and that she loved every single one of us. She then motioned to the size of the room and said that her heart was that big. She’s the best.
