This past Thanksgiving she took selfies with my little cousin Ryley. Grandma is a pretty hip lady.
Grandma just stopped driving 5 or 6 years ago. She is very independent. She loves to crochet and do word puzzles. She loves the Atlanta Braves and she loves to watch golf.

She is an amazing lady. She and I have a very unique relationship. She tells me things she remembers from her childhood. Whenever I go to Ohio to visit, I park my car at Mom's house and walk across the street to see Grandma first. I want her to know that I made the trip safely. I don't look at this woman as my husband's grandmother. She's my grandma. We share secrets and I always buy her tootsie rolls. She loves her tootsie rolls.
I fell so blessed to have this lady in my life. I can't wait to get to Ohio to see her and celebrate her 100th birthday.
I know that we won't have her for much longer and that breaks my heart. I have fond memories of her and our talks.
