Happy Birthday Grams!!
Today is my Grandma Nancy's (and Judah's Great Grandma's) Birthday!!! I won't tell you how old she is, but I'll just say that she looks and acts about half her age. My Grams is definitely the best grandma possible to have. She used to take us swimming at the Durham Pool. She wouldn't just sit on the side, but she would get it and play games with us. She would let me swim under her legs, then she would swim under mine.
In high school when Grams picked me up from school she didn't care how long it took me to come out to the car. (My mom wanted me right out when the bell rang.) She would bring her book or the newspaper and read while I stopped by to pick up my stained glass project or chatted with friends. And, just like she does for Miranda now she would get me a snack after school. Also, she's not afraid to have fun. She'd always say "what's up homie?" when I asked her to and would do other crazy/funny things just like me. That must be where I get it.
The reason I call her "Grams" is because it just fits. She needs a cool nickname for a cool Grandma. Grams is the most giving person you could ever meet. She gives freely of her time, her money, her resources, whatever. She takes me out to lunch, buys Judah clothes and diapers from Costco, and so much more.
The thing that I appreciate the most about Grams is that if it wasn't for her I wouldn't have a relationship with God. Who knows where I'd be. When I was little I would spend the night at her house. She would pray with me and tell me about Jesus and in the morning she would take me to Sunday School. She kept taking me to church until I turned 16 and could drive myself. THANK YOU!!!
I'm so thankful that Judah has gotten to know his Great Grandma so well. I love you so much Grams!
