A Special Day - May 13th

Remembering a Special Lady Today~

This is a picture of my Grandma
or Phyllis May

Of course, as a young adult, I always had animals
as you can see - somethings haven't changed ;)

When I think of Grandma, I remember that I never
ever heard her say one mean thing about anyone
(I bet most of you feel like that about your grandmother too!)

Her favorite color was purple, she loved sea shells, tuna fish

And...

She could not say Massachusetts ;) which we kidded her about~

She had a heart of gold and I wanted to share her kind spirit
of life with you. See, one of my dogs has had enough of the other
but does my Grandma throw her off her lap or tell Baron to go away?

Nope.
That was my Grandma ;)

Awww sweetie how gorgeous was this post. Special wishes sent to your Granma and to you too gorgeous girl. You really are one of a kind.
And yep my nanna, from what i do remember, was a real sweetie too. I always think of her when i see Pinwheel cushions....she had lots of them.
Granmas are special...but so are grand daughters (like you).

Good Morning Tracie,
Hope your week is kicking off to a wonderful start! Hopefully having great weather too, that is always a huge bonus! I am sitting here in a blanket and wool socks...sigh!
Your grandma was sure a peach! What a wonderful blessing to have someone like that in your life, my kids haven't had a grandma near by...my mom is still really young and is busy working etc. so they just don't have the kind of sweet memories you will always have!
I am sure you miss her everyday.
Bless you this week,
Donna Lynn

There is something innocent and delightfully "pure" about dogs and grandmas!

That was a very sweet tribute to your grandma Tracie :)

My step-grandma was really sweet, but my real one died before I was old enough to remember her. My grandpa (Papa) was my one and only.

Have a beautiful evening sweetie.
Hugs and love,

Oh Tracie, I love that you have such precious memories of your grandma. I lost my grandmother when I was only 1 and was never close to my other one so that is really something to hold near and dear to your heart.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

P.S. Thanks for telling me I'm not crazy! LOL!!!

Hey Tracie,
How sweet Tracie. May 13th is my Mothers birthday as well, and my son was born on Friday July 13th. To me it is a very lucky day.

HUGS...

Oh, Tracie - that was the sweetest tribute to your Grandma! What a beautiful photo of her with the doggums :) And sorry you're having such hot, dry weather... It's been unseasonably cold here in the Northeast and it poured today... So I'm wishing for warmer climates and sunny skies! Wanna trade? LOL...Donna
