an excellent reason to celebrate


July is a month of birthday parties for us, and we were privileged to be part of a celebration for 90 years on planet earth.

And, let me tell you something about my sister-in-law's 90-year old grandmama --- she did not look a day over 60!  Those were the exact words, the only words, the came to mind the first time I saw her. She just exuded happiness, contentment, and peace.  If we could be all that at our respective ages, the world would definitely be a better place.


Her cake literally lit up the entire room (90 candles)!  Lighting all the candles required several adults and many minutes to accomplish.  The cake shone like the Olympic torch.


Blowing out ten candles seemed difficult enough, and 90?  Let's just say we were all on our feet and clapping by the time the last candle was blown out.  I actually got a bit teary-eyed to see her family blessed with an abundance of time with her.  Lucky!  I hope they appreciate their good fortune.



One thing is for sure though --- there was a lot of love in the room.  Both from all the relatives who traveled near and far to celebrate with her, and from the birthday girl herself.


Happy 90th birthday Grandma Leonodora!
See you for your 91st in Vegas!

Luv,
Lease and the gang

Awww! That's so sweet, I'll have to share this with my family. Love what you did with the pics of the cake and candles, too.
