I mean, if you're still here to celebrate then it's a good one , right? :)
Anyway, it was a quiet, low key day.
My daughters and my mom prepared a brunch and tea at Sara's house.
We had a wonderful time visiting and relaxing together.
Abby informed us all that she had worn her RED PANTIES especially for my birthday!!!
Who knew I'd be honored so???? :)
While I was stretched out in the recliner Abby snuggled up in my lap(very rare for her to be this still) and looked up at me and really quietly said, "Granny, I am so happy it's your birthday! I love you so much!" and then she rubbed my face in her chubby little hand!
Is there a more precious gift???
Speaking of special gifts I must tell you about the looking glass in the picture .
It was one of my gifts yesterday.
At first I hadn't recognized it-
The last time I saw it , it was dusty with face powder and "rouge"(my grandma always called blush that) and the glass was broken. There was a tiny space you could see yourself in but mostly it just lay in the left hand drawer of the dressing table amid hair nets,rouge pots, and hairpins.
It was there for as long as I can remember-
and I remember being as young as 8-10 and barely able to see myself in the mirror over the table!!!
My mom had it repaired then cleaned and polished it and presented it to me for my birthday!
As I look into it, I can't help but think of my grandmother as she looked at her hair and face
to ready herself for her day.
It's a nice memory to start off my day.
