Happy Birthday, Meme

Emily, Meme, Audrey

My grandmother, Meme, turned 93 last Saturday. When I was little, I called her by her first name, because she didn't think she was old enough to be called "grandma". My little sister didn't think it was right to call our grandmother "Audrey", so she started calling her "Meme". I didn't like it. It thought it was the most ridiculous thing I had ever heard in my entire life. But, I was shamed into calling her Meme and Meme is who she is today!

We had a nice party for her and a few other friends of the family who were celebrating this month. Meme didn't want another birthday party until her 95th, she got one anyway.

My grandmother has always been a bulwark in my life. She is loving, generous, and kind. The most important thing you can know about her, though, is that she loves Jesus! Her life is a testimony of a Godly woman.

I love you, Meme!

She is the same age as my grandma, Rick. : ) She's beautiful and has so few wrinkles!
