I am so lucky to have her in my life... She taught me all sorts of great things:
- The love of gardening
- How to can chili (hot stuff - jalapeño, tomatoes, etc.)
- The love of roses
- To cook (all sorts of great Mexican dishes!)
- To sew
- To embroider
- To crochet
- To appreciate the important things in life - God's gifts
My sisters and I spent lots of summers with my Grandparents. My favorite Grandma/Grandpa memories are of their little farm in Watsonville, CA. We used to get in trouble for hanging in the fruit trees, eating lots of plumbs. I really got in trouble when I broke a peach branch! I have not forgotten it to this day!! My Grandfather Leonard died just before the Millennium (2000) when he was almost a century! My Grandmother hasn't been 'the same' since Grandpa died.. yet, she is still manages to live in her own home, crochet sweet gifts for babies, and keep her 'family' on their toes!
Happy Birthday Grandma. I love you dearly.
