Happy Un-birthday to my Grandma

My Grandma Robison is probably the hippest grandma I know. She has an email account, a cell phone and a Facebook page. She has some of the best style sense of anyone her age, or anyone, anywhere for that matter. Plus, most of her friends are forty-some years younger that her (I've seen these friends with Grandma, they think she is simply the cat's meow.)

As ultra cool and modern as Grandma is, she still has some charming, old-fashion characteristics. For example: As long as I've known her, the expression she uses the most often is, "Oh, forevermore." This could mean she is mildly miffed about something, exasperated that you just beat her in a card game, or genuinely touched by something nice somebody did for her. I love this expression and I love when she uses it. She also, like any well-bred, old-fashion lady, does not relieve her age. And by that, I mean she has told us (her family) to stop celebrating her birthday. (She said, "When you're my age, you'll understand.")

So, this is not a happy birthday post. That is why it is posted one whole day after her non-existent birthday, so clearly this is nothing more than a random mention of admiration for my amazing Grandma. Who is one of the most faithful, full-of-grace women I've ever had the privilege of knowing. Plus, she is sweet. I'm not talking "pinch-your-cheeks" sugary sweet. I mean she is genuinely, care-about-everyone, soft-spoken, others-first, hardly ever (once that I can ever remember) raises her voice, SWEET.

Happy Random Mention of Admiration (not at all related to your birthday) Grandma! I love you so much!
