Happy Birthday Grammy!
Today is my mom's birthday. It is the day after our anniversary, the day after Elvis' birthday. I remember growing up that when an aunt would send our Christmas presents she always sent a birthday present for my mom in bright birthday paper, very different from the Christmas wrapping. Very thoughtful.
My kiddos call her Grammy. And she is such a great Grammy. She will talk on the phone any time they call. She buys cool presents and awesome clothes. She has been known to come up to help me clean, all I had to do was ask.
She was living in Florida when I unexpectedly had to have an emergency c-section with #1. She was on the phone with the doctor all morning, making certain I had the best care possible at her old stomping grounds. She jumped on a plane and made it just hours after the birth. With #2 we also went earlier than planned and she again jumped on a plane and made it with minutes to spare. #3 was at her old hospital and she even got to be in the operating room!
Her being a nurse is a huge blessing to me. She probably thinks I am a hypochondriac because I call her often with random symptoms and she always calms me down.
We love our Grammy tremendously!
Have a happy, happy birthday, Grammy!
