Happy 70th Grandma Bonnie

Grandma Bonnie turned 70 this week and we celebrated it with high tea at Auntie Lexis' house.  

We had taken turns to say what we liked best about Grandma and there was a general consensus that we liked her so much because she always encouraged everyone and got behind everybody in whatever they were doing.  Everyone found it hard to nail down exactly what we liked best about Grandma because her best quality is pushing everybody else ahead of her.  We like her because she makes us feel good about ourselves.  She is a selfless promoter and facilitator of whatever we're doing.  Piano playing, raising chickens, raising kids.... She is never happier than when she is in the background watching everybody thrive.    

Mom - you are a relentless source of love and encouragement.  I can not recall the last time I heard you complain about anything.  I pray I can be as faithful, forgiving, and long-suffering a mother as you have been for Alexis and I.   You really are quite a lady.  You are the gatherer of our family and you keep us knitted together.  I love you so much and am so very thankful for you.  May God bless and keep you, mom.  He is faithful to "present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy."  Jude 1:24

Love from your girls, Kathleena and Alexis
