My beautiful Grandma Bar is the definition of class. She is tall, elegant and quiet. Her own life hasn’t always been easy, but those hard times don’t show on her face or on her spirit. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
She is 90 years old today and some of the family is getting together to honour and celebrate with her. For those of us who can't make it across the border, we want to take a moment to honour her. She is a strong, determined woman with style, grace, class and poise. She is enthusiastic and quite funny. She loves the color blue. Anything blue.
Truth be told, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that everyone in my family feels the same about my grandmother. Her presence in our lives is the ultimate proof that there is a higher power. We are blessed exponentially by just knowing her; we are aware of the beauty that she brings to our worlds. Not only did she raise my dad and his brothers and sisters (all 7 of them), she helped to raise several of my cousins. She simply smiles and expands her heart to include a little more space for the next one and the next one and the…Her love is limitless.
My family who live in the States and are able to see her more often have the benefit of this loving woman who feeds their dreams with sweets and kind words, who encourages their growth with her laughter and smiles.
I LOVE MY GRANDMA and I want everyone to know that she has poured the best of herself into her children and her family. I am indebted to her for showing me that you can be a strong woman without being hard. I appreciate that she is charitable and continues to do for others. I thank the Universe for blessing us with her and I am eternally grateful for her love.
Your life has impacted not only our lives, but also the lives of those that know & love you!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA BARB!!!!
