Today would have been my Grandma Brown's #82nd Birthday. My Grandma and Grandpa lived in Kansas City all of my life but it seemed like we would see them fairly often. They were always here for our "important" occasions like 8th grade graduation, high school graduation, our weddings, etc! We even went on several family vacations with them. Some of my favorite memories are when my brother and I would go out to Grandma and Grandpa Brown's for 2-3 weeks during the summer! Boy would they ever spoil us kids! We never wanted to come home.
Grandma passed away almost 4 years ago from Pancreatic Cancer. She was quite the fighter and lived much longer than her doctor's expected. We were able to be with her the night she went to see Jesus. I think of my Grandparents often and wish they were still around to see my children. I know my kids would have LOVED them as much as I did. Grandma would have gotten a big kick out of these twins!
I am sure Grandma is having a much better birthday party in Heaven today than she would have ever had down here! Can you imagine celebrating your birthday with Jesus and all the saints?! What a party!
Well, Happy Birthday Grandma. I still think of you often and wish you were here to celebrate your birthday! How about this instead, we'll come see you someday and celebrate with you there! :)
I love you Grandma!
