90 and 1 to grow on…

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

This time last night, Robert and I were guests at an amazing birthday party.  Yesterday was, in fact, Robert’s grandmother’s 90th birthday.  It was quite the event.  It was not a huge party.  It was not a black tie party.  But it was a fabulous party.

Grandmama was joined by her best friend and surrounded by her family.  As I talked with Grandmama and her friend before dinner I thought about what all these women have seen in their 90 years.  Plenty of bad, lots of good.  Pain and joy, happy and sad.  I am sure their experiences run the gamut of human emotion.

I am happy to report that there was nothing but love and happiness as we gathered to celebrate Grandmama’s monumental birthday.  If I am lucky enough to make it to 90, I will be sitting with my best friend surrounded by my family to celebrate.  It sounds pretty good to me!
