THINKING OF GRANDMA

I am thinking of my Grandma Sowders today and how much I miss her after all these years. I spent a lot of time at her house as I have an aunt only fourteen months older than me. I loved sleepovers with my Aunt Sue at grandma's house. I know there must have been times when we almost drove her crazy!

After I married and lived in New Mexico she rode a Greyhound bus from Indiana to New Mexico to be with me when my first child, Cindy, was born. I was so thankful to have her there as I ended up very sick and paralyzed from the waist down for a period of time. I was so weak when I was finally released from the hospital I don't know how I would have made it without her. She loved seeing New Mexico and I believe that trip was one of the highlights of her life.

In her later years she moved into town and my children and I would take her places and visit with her often. All three of my children enjoyed her very much. I wish we could celebrate her birthday with her one more time. Now she celebrates in Heaven and we can see her again someday. Happy Birthday Granny.
