I would love to share this beautiful picture of my Grandma. It was taken last Sunday when I visited her. We went for a walk in the garden, as Grandma loves flowers and has always been an avid gardener. She was obviously very influential in the lives of all her children, as my mother and her sister and brothers have all loved gardening and kept (or keep) extensive gardens as well. Grandma will be 99 years old this June. She's mentally alert and with it, but her body is growing more frail as time goes on. She directed me to a walk-way with rails on each side. Once we got there, she got out of the wheelchair, took two steps hanging onto the rails, and then walked the rest of the length of the walk-way with 'no hands'. She was so pleased, and so was I! I cheered her on! I love you, Grandma!
