~ A Grand Party for a Grand Lady ~

The party was grand I tell you! Just GRAND! 

The table was set with only the best: Waterford, silver,  and fine china.

The cake was made of chocolate, chocolate and a little chocolate thrown in for good measure. 

We invited new friends,

dear friends and their daughters, 


and dear, dear friends of years gone past. 

The grandchildren came. 

They wore their finest. 

Of course Auntie and her Jim were there. They would never miss such an occasion. 

Aunt Georgia drove in from Florida and was the prize of the evening. 

There was great conversation, 

singing, a little bit of singing, then of course there was singing and don't forget  "the song"

a little bit more cake, laughter and tears of joy.


There was real happiness. 

Happiness that fills your heart with pure joy ran through the house that night.  You could just feel it.  It was a grand party for a grand lady.
