Happy 93rd Birthday, Grandma

My grandmother, Elsa, is 93-years-old today.  She is one of the most amazing women I know and I am so lucky to have her in my life.  Growing up with her around over the years I have learned so many wonderful things that I will always carry with me.  She taught me how to make a bed; she showed me way the nurses made them when she was in the army.  She taught me how to wrap presents, so neat and precise and to this day I love to wrap gifts.  She taught me a lot about love, family, and friendship.  Even more I can credit her for what she has taught me about faith.  I've learned from her about family traditions and values.  My middle name was named after her mother.  I love when she shows me pictures of her family and other old photos of when she was younger and throughout her life.  I love her so much.  She means the world to me.  Happy Birthday, grandma.
