A celebration

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Yesterday I had the awesome pleasure of attending my best friend's grandmother 100th birthday. Manita( that's what everyone calls her) birthday was actually born on Valentine's Day. She was born & raised off the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia.

I love talking to her when we go to visit her. She knows me when she see me & she definitely knows all her family..right down to the great great grandchildren. Manita isn't able to get around like she used to but she loves when her family comes to visit. When asked what keeps her going..she quick to tell you FAMILY!! She has outlived he only the man she ever loved..her husband, along with some of her children.

Just think this lovely woman has been around all the changes that happened in the crazy world. Even had the opportunity to see our first black president.

I wonder sometimes if I would every be able to meet another great woman like her.

P.S. Thanks to all that good cooking..I managed to stay within my calories...SURPRISINGLY!!! emoticon
