Happy 82nd

Happy Birthday Grandma, Nina, Mom. I am pretty sure mom was not looking 50 years into the future when this picture was taken. She was knee deep in child-rearing, cooking, cleaning, diaper-changing, nursing - 82 seems pretty far away when that is your life. Who would have guessed that after this shot was taken this smallish family would travel from Ireland to Nigeria, to the USA, doubling in size along the way (well double plus one - E), produce 14 grandkids? One life, knee deep in the immediacy of the needs of young children, unable to see what God had planned but faith that He had one for her. Look how far her life has gone! I for one couldn't be happier. I married the "plus one" and I am so grateful! Happy Birthday.
