Happy Birthday Grandmoms

These are not my grandmothers..

Today would be my grandmother's birthdays. 
They were each born on Sept. 7.
Life was not easy for these ladies. 
They experienced the depression first hand.
  They worked hard. 
They could stretch a dollar bill farther than a piece of bubble gum.
They worked in the same shoe factory in their younger years.
 They were great cooks and bakers, making each meal taste like Thanksgiving dinner.
They loved their families.
They made you feel special, like the favorite grandchild. 
I knew I was.
Part of who I am today is because of these great ladies.

Who are you today because of the influencers in your life?

Who are you influencing and are you aware of it? Who are you praying for, investing in and encouraging? 

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Hebrews 10:24-25

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am who I am because of a youth pastor who invested in my life. He saw something in me that I didn't see in myself.


Don't be shy...
