Today would have been my wonderful Gramma B's 84th birthday. She was completely selfless, always caring, and very sassy. She raised her 10 kids, helped raise all of her grandkids, and even some of her great-grand kids; not to mention she was full time babysitter for over 72 families over the course of her life. She loved with all of her heart & taught us all to live with compassion for others. If you've read this far I'm sure you might be wondering why I have a photo of myself & I'm talking about my Gram, I say all that because my heart was heavy during my wedding planning knowing that one of the most influential women in my life wouldn't be sitting in the front row watching me marry the love of my life, she never even got to meet him. On my wedding day I decided to honor her presence by walking down the aisle to one of her favorite songs by Elvis, "Can't Help Falling In Love" (even though it was a different version) and I wore her favorite flowers in my hair & in my bouquet. She may not have been there physically but I carried her with me the whole time.
Happy Birthday in Heaven Gram, I miss you dearly ❤️
