ELIZABETH ~ 96 YEARS YOUNG TODAY
Today Elizabeth celebrated her 96th Birthday. Unfortunately she was not feeling up to par, but it didn't stop her from visiting and opening her presents. The care giver took the picture and I don't think Elizabeth heard her say "Cheese". Even thought she was under the weather we had a really nice time, and had a few laughs too. She really liked the blouses I took her. I think she'll look pretty in the black and red one. Very festive. Her family are coming tonight, and since she's not feeling well, they will stay in instead of taking her out for dinner.
I read her the Christmas Story from the Rhyme Bible, and she enjoyed hearing the story and seeing the watercolors. Her mind is so sharp. We were discussing cancer, and how her two brothers and two sisters died from cancer much younger than she is. She has never had a surgery (except cataracts) Here is her logic, and I like it. Why don't cancer researchers test people like her, and find out why she doesn't have cancer, instead of testing everyone who has it.
She is just so interesting and I look forward to each visit. Reminds me so much of my Aunt Cassie that lived to 98. Some of you remember her stories several years ago when I had my Brushstrokes from the Heart Blog.
