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:
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!
