Please meet my Grandmother. January 23 would have been here Birthday. Needless to say, she left a lifetime impression on me, and has always been my greatest Inspiration.
The best description of her can be made in
Proverbs 31:10 “….For her worth is far above rubies”
In the picture below she was probably about 5 years old.
When I Married, she gave me a lovely, delicate handkerchief of linen and lace which was made in Germany. She had a box of these that she saved to give her Granddaughters as their “Something Old” to carry when they married. As a little girl, she would indulge me when often I wanted to look at this box of handkerchiefs.
Isn’t the lace beautiful.
When she passed away, I was given the Gold Wedding Band that my Grandfather gave her when they Married.
It is inscribed with his initials: EK.
Because of her, my goal is to be
an ancient woman of wisdom.
Until next time, Honey

I love my grandmother, and I think you have decided upon a very worthy goal for yourself!!! :D Nice features from last week's party, too! I hope you have a great week, Honey!ReplyDelete
I love it. She looks so warm and caring. That is a wonderful legacy to have. Glad to see so many posts this month about things that matter more than decor. But I still love pretty things.ReplyDelete
such beautiful lace! you were lucky to have herReplyDelete
What a wonderful tribute to your grandmother! You are so blessed to have known her. The lace is gorgeous.ReplyDelete
I was especially touched by your post because today would be my Grandad's birthday and tomorrow would be my Granny's birthday. I always thought it was so special that they were born a day apart in the same year. I was so blessed to live a short distance from them from the time I was born and I have so many wonderful memories of both of them!! In 1932, Granny received a special birthday gift - her son, my Daddy! We are celebrating his 80th birthday tomorrow!!ReplyDelete
What a charming and sweet post. Aspiring to the proverbs 31 woman is not a bad aspiration at all. Today is my late brother's and Joe's late mother's birthday as well.ReplyDelete
To paraphrase a bit, "Her grandchildren will rise up and call her blessed!" What a lovely tribute to your lovely grandmother. It blessed me to read it!ReplyDelete
