Today would have been my grandmother's 95th birthday.  She was a woman of stunning grace, eternal optimism and quiet strength.  She taught me many lessons, many of which I'm just figuring out now.  What a gift to pass on wisdom in a manner that unfolds even after your departure.  But, she was like that.

Today, I'm going to sit quietly with a cup of tea from this treasured cup that was a gift from her.  And then, I'm going to bake her famous sugar cookies.   

Happy Birthday, GG.
