Sweet 16

Sunday, January 27, 2013

I originally wasn't going to write this blog but changed my mind. 16 was a difficult age for you. First your best friend Susan was killed by a truck riding her bicycle to school, your beloved Grandmother passed away after a long and fruitful life, and your young Mother died after a long battle with cancer.

But all that hardship made you into a strong and loving woman, who appreciates every day and loves life and learned to live one day at a time. You survived with grace and love and a truly strong belief in a Higher Power and became truly close with your 13 and 4 year- old sisters.

You won't believe that being a "Skinny Minnie" (5'6" and 124 pounds) all your life at 60 you finally gained weight and now need to watch everything that goes in your mouth. Now that's funny!
