Granny Turns 74 in Style

I don't remember what was so funny, but granny sure looks fabulous!

Today, granny celebrated her 74th birthday with a party and a tiara to match her fabulosity. Granny’s closest friends and neighbors stopped by to show her some love and to eat all of her favorite foods: mac and cheese, candied yams, collard greens, fried chicken, red velvet cake, and coconut and pineapple cake.  

During my recent war against clutter, I found a birthday card I made granny when I was a little girl. Although I made the card more than twenty years ago, its wishes still hold true:

Dear grandmother,

I wish you a Happy Birthday. Since today is a special

day for you, I have a promise to make and keep. I

promise to improve in my behavior and math. I wish

you this birthday, and many


                                                                            I made this poem

May your heart be as light as a snowflake,

May your troubles dissolve like them too,                 

And a snowstorm of good wishes,                                   

I’m hoping may fall upon you.

As for my behavior and math, some things never change! Happy Birthday granny poo!
