It's hot outside. You may be wearing a spiderman costume or a flowergirl dress. The neighbor's sprinklers are on. You run in the sprinklers. That is all

"Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many."
We all got together at my mom's house to celebrate my grandma's 75th birthday. My grandma is a wonderful lady who filled my childhood with so many fond memories. Some of those may have been a bit embarrassing at the time, but looking back all I remember is how much she loved us and loved the people around her. She'll always be a little more outspoken and "ballsy" than I am, but she has taught me so many great lessons in life and I wouldn't be the woman I am without her. She may lament the wrinkles on her face and the slower pace she has to take, but I'm so thankful that she is a part of our childrens' lives!
Our kids call her GG, but she'll always be Grandma Jo to me no matter how many times she changes her name.
We love you!!

I'll admit that birthdays make me sentimental. I think back about her birth, her babyhood, the toddler years, etc. This year, I decided to do a little scavenger hunt for her gifts. She loved it.
