December Birthday of a Special Woman

When it's a busy holiday season, you're not always happy when there's another party, whether it's because of an anniversary or a holiday. I'm no different. So, yes, there was always a bit of grumbling about my grandmother's birthday, which was smack dab in the middle of the holiday season on 15 December. But, I always went, and I always had fun.

My grandmother and I always had a connection. We were interested in a lot of the same things and we could, and did, talk for hours. The simple scrap page below is a tribute to a wonderful woman, whom I was most fortunate to know.

My grandmother passed away five years ago, on 27 December. Her birthday was the last time I saw her alive, and I'm very glad I got to see her for the last time, surrounded by almost all of her family, happy and cheerful.
