She can rescue a broken rocking chair from the street and transform it into a stunning living room piece; she keeps an immaculate house; she is a master painter--walls, furniture, anything.; she is expert at nurturing house plants; she can mend even the worst clothing rips; she has the ability to make anyone and everyone feel welcomed and special; she lives life to the fullest and makes time for the most important things. I always feel like she has time for me. She's great. I love her, and isn't she cute?
To celebrate her retirement she sponsored a trip to Washington DC for her children and grandchildren last month. We had tons of fun, visiting the monuments, museums, and gardens, and simply hanging out at the hotel--swimming, eating and laughing. My kids sure love their cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. They didn't mind one bit that they had to miss a week of school for this.
