Happy Birthday MawMaw

HAPPY 90TH BIRTHDAY
MAWMAW!!!
I LOVE YOU









Today my mawmaw celebrates 90 years of life. I hope to see many more of her birthdays, but with her deteriorating health, I am not sure that will happen.
Mawmaw used to keep me and my sister when we were little. I believe I must get my love of reading from her. I remember her taking us to the library often. She read romance novels. I don't remember how often we went, but she would check out sack fulls of books. Sissy and I used to play library at her apartment. We would get all the books out and stack them up.
She was also a sewer. I used to use all the left over fabrics to make my barbie dolls clothes. But she shared with my sister the real talent of sewing.
Mawmaw made the best teacake cookies. The cookies were good, but the dough was the best. That's the part I was interested in, truth be told.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAWMAW!!
I LOVE YOU
