The 4th of July - 2009 will be over in almost a hour....but the memories of the day & night will linger on for many many years...I'm dedicating this post to my grandmother "Mrs. Anne Haveron - born on July 4th, 1907"...I lost my grandmother just over a year ago...it seems like yesterday all the gatherings we had to celebrate her birthday(and many other holidays too)....some years all the aunts, uncles, cousins and their spouses and children, and different friends would come to celebrate with us - not only did we celebrate the 4th of july with everyone, but we got together to eat another cake & join in song to celebrate this well loved woman's b-day....she would "thank" everyone & than say that she wasn't sure if she would be around for one more....my grandma was admired by many and she touched many hearts that crossed her path...I know that she is smiling down on us....I know that I can say that I was truly Blessed to have her in my life & to be Loved by her "Our Queen Mother", sorry I feel the tears welling up in my eyes & heaviness on my chest - so I will keep this post short.
In tribute to my grandmother I gathered daisies (her favorite flower)and hydrangeas - I also purchase the most cutest little gal who I name "Mizz 4th of July"... her creator is another gal that I've come to adore and admire through her blog, she is truly one talented & kind lady and her name is Laurie - her blOZ name is http://magpieethel.typepad.com - please do go by and tell Laurie I said "HI" and that I sent you.
Well's that all folks, I hope that you had a great holiday & got to see some fireworks....I leave you off with a saying that my grandmother & I said to each other when I left her after our visits together.
"See you later alligator - after while crocidile" I Love you Grandma!
Have a honey of a night - sweet dreams!
