What could possibly be the occasion for such fancy feet? Nanny Ruth turned 90! And, oh my, did we celebrate. There were flowers and cake, spoken memories and dancing, and a guest of honor who was reminded of how loved she truly is. When people tell stories about Nanny they almost always mention her smile and how it always made and still makes them feel extra loved and extra listened to. All of the story telling and memory recollection that I heard this weekend makes me feel so fortunate. My daughters and I - we are the lucky ones who get to be her grand and great grand children. I've gotten to see that smile every time I've walked into her home for the past 32 years and now my girls get to see it too.
Oh, did we celebrate!
