Happy Birthday Grandma!
This is one of our favorite pictures of Grandma! It was taken just a few weeks after she and Grandpa arrived in Trinidad to serve a two year mission. I remember when the kids first saw it and the excitement and laughter that ensued. We have since framed it and it sits on display in our family room to remind us how much we LOVE Grandma!
Why do we love Grandma? Let us count the ways:
We love her example of service to others
We love how she remembers the special times in our lives
(comforters on 8th birthdays, pearl necklaces for the girls when they turn 16, birthday cards, special Christmas letters, notes and books on mothers and fathers day, etc.)
We love going to her house for Sunday dinners with the favorite mashed potatoes and gravy
We love her warm welcomes every time we come to visit
We love her frequent phone calls to check up on us
We love her entries in the Meldrum Memo. They are always so descriptive and deep!
We love that there is always chocolate hiding somewhere in her cupboards!
(I found some just the other day, yummy!)
We love how she continually teaches us with her spiritual insights and thoughts
And the list goes on and on and on...
We are so blessed to live near you and to have your influence in each of our lives. We are proud and honored to be your children and grandchildren!
We love you! Happy, Happy Birthday!
