This beautiful lady right here is my Great Grandma.

Today she turned 100 years young!!!!!!

I was born 2 days before her 60th birthday

I use to get the story of when I was born

…if I remember correctly it’s been awhile…

She was visiting my mama and grandma and sharing a bed with my mama

My mom kept climbing over her to go to the bathroom

after so many times of this happening

my grandma asked what was going on and my mom said she had to keep

going and my grandma laughed and said honey you are in labor.

She great grandma would say to me honey you were already 5 days late another 2

days wouldn’t have mattered any. Quickly followed with I still love you Sugar

you were the best birthday gift a grandma could get that year. She said it was always

easy how to remember her age because she was 60 yrs older than me

And I have never forgotten her age as a result of her story

Like myself my kids have gotten to hear stories from her and my aunt

of their days when young girls out in the cottonfield.  My aunt Leona is the baby of the

family and my grandma would have to take care of her

while their parents worked the fields.

She says sometimes she would just cry and cry

or how just like my middle she is deathly afraid of thunderstorms

newspaper clipping

To me, you’re 10 decades young. When I look at you, I don’t see a 100 year old. I see someone who inspires me to love every trial and tribulation of life. May your special day be filled with sunshine, smiles, family, laughter and love…exactly what you’ve brought the world for 10 decades. You shouldn’t only be congratulated for reaching 100, an amazing milestone in itself. You should be praised for the love, caring and wisdom you’ve given so generously every day for 100 years. You’re a very special person, and not just because you’ve lived 100 years. Mostly, you’re special because, whether you’ve faced bad or good times, you have always been a loving presence and kind hand for everyone around you. Happy 100th birthday Great Grandma Rosie! We love you so very much

There is soooo many photos of this day I have had a hard time limiting but I posted

over 100 on facebook so I will refrain from posting that many here lol.

It was a beautiful day lots of family called or showed up to treasure

such an honorable day.  The Mayor of her small town even came

and presented her with a certificate!  We had to tell her she needed

to take her first bite so everyone else could eat there cake lol.
