87th Birthday!



My Grandma Weaver is celebrating her 87th Birthday, today. I can only hope & pray that I look this good at 87. :) This woman birthed 8 children into this world (reason enough to be my hero) and prayed for each of them to come to know the Lord. She has lived to see that happen and SO MUCH MORE. I have fun memories of visiting her and Papa, when I was young. It was a place to play with LOTS of cousins and to always get some of Grandma's yummy creamed corn and dill pickles! She would always go straight to the kitchen and fix us something to eat. It didn't matter if you had just eaten before you arrived, you were eating again. I never complained, because the woman can cook! Homemade creamed corn and dill pickles were always on the menu and I hope to receive the secret recipes for both, someday. *hint-hint, if any of my aunts are reading this* :)

I hope that you have a wonderful day, Grandma. You mean so much to so many.

I love you!

Jill

Happy birthday to your grandma. She sounds a lot like mine. Thank you for your good wishes. I'm on your blog everyday and believe it or not you are top of my prayer list. If it can happen for me, definitely yours is a testimony I am eagerly waiting to tell. Keep on being you & thanks for all your support.

My sister goes to Gouchos quite a bit!!! She lives in Searcy and Gouchos is how I heard about these kinds of restaurants for the first time! I went to Harding for a few years...and my g-ma lives in the Searcy area, so I am familiar with NLR!
