The Birthday Girl

 Mother was so tickled to receive over 125 cards from 12 states!! She had no clue we had this up our sleeves.  Thanks to Kristi and Leta for making Mother's 90th birthday special by planning a dinner for Mother. Mother's youngest sister and one of her dearest friends came for supper. In addition to the cards, Mother received lots of yummy snacks and several lovely floral arrangements. Thanks to EVERYONE who took time to send a card. I appreciate it so much. 

Here is the box Leta found to hold all the cards.




It was full to the top!!



Mother opening her cards. Leta reported that it took over an hour to open them all! 


I asked Mother if she ever thought she would live to be 90 and she laughed and said, No. One of her first cousins lived to be 100 but so far she is the oldest of her generation in the family.  As she told me, she has been blessed. We have been blessed to have her as our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Happy Birthday to this special lady! What a wonderful surprise to get all of those cards! She's probably still going back to look through them all. Enjoy your week!
