Great-Grandma's 100th

Today was my great grandmother's 100th birthday. She was born in 1908, which kind of blows my mind. As my dad and I were discussing at her birthday party, that means she easily could have known veterans from the Civil War. Wow. She was in a wheelchair and she's in a nursing home, but she seemed pretty much aware of what was going on. She's blind and she doesn't quite know who everyone is, but she's aware of what's going on, and at 100, I think I'd settle for that. It was rather sad as we were leaving...she mentioned that she wished Harley, her husband who died about 20 years ago, could have been there today. No one had heard her say his name in at least the last several years, so that was interesting...and she was crying a little thinking about him. That was so cute and romantic and sad...Missing your husband 20 years after he's been gone is pretty profound love.
