45 years ago

Celebrating my 1st birthday.

I love this photo! My mom, two grandmas and two great grandmothers sang altogether, "Happy birthday, dear Sherry." Isn't that just the coolest?

I had the privilege of growing up near my grandparents. They were in the stream of my daily life: my sick days, my summer days, my afterschool days, my Saturdays, my Sundays, my holidays. They gave so much to me, in so many ways. My grandmothers are gone now, but many memories linger. Traits and gifts of who they were, are now a part of me.

Happy Birthday Sherry!

I love old photos. They are so funny and so similar .... not as good a quality as today and never many close up shots. Your family could be standing in the same room as my 1st birthday. Same clothes, hair, glasses. Too funny.

Have a wonderful day! I hope you do some celebrating.
