To mark the occasion, my mum and aunt worked tirelessly to put together a photo book showing the landmarks my Grandma's life. When looking through it myself, it made me realise what a wonderfully rich and full life she's had. Every memory depicted with a smile, all surrounded by family or friends or both. It solidified for me what really matters in life, not fame and fortune, but happiness.
If I can make it to 85 with even half as many happy memories as my beautiful Grandma, I will consider myself a very lucky lady. Happy birthday Grandma, and here's to many, many more! Love you always.
