Love Inspiring

Here is a story you will love....
My grandmother is 93 years old, round, roly poly, fun, happy lady that all this kids flock to.  Her whole life she lived in poverty, was taken care of by her children or living with other ladies.  She was married before though her circumstances have never changed.  Despite that she has always been a positive, cheerful and a Godly person.  A role model for others.  

In one week, she will be getting MARRIED to a 94 year old man who loves her for who she is, her raisen pies and her hand made dresses.  He is a well dressed man who still own's his own business.  He has a maid and eats out every day while still making sure his friends are taken care of.  They have been officially courting each other for the past 5 months with chaperones. 

 Last week he popped the question and the next day bought her a real diamond ring, first one she has ever wore.  He is taking her to Hawaii for a 2 week honeymoon!  She is so giddy like a school girl.  He told her when he dies she will never have to worry about finances again!  

How sweet is this!!!!  I am so happy for my grandmother, she deserves peace and happiness in her life, finally!  I had to share this with you, it gives us all HOPE.

To celebrate their occasion, I made them this card with Mo Manning Senior images.  They are colored in Copics.  I used a Cherry Lynn die for the base and a memory box die for the gate.

They walk hand in had so I can picture them in these two images.  This is the front of their card.

I made a easel card for them and this is the inside base.  My easel photo is missing, I am having computer issues in regards to my photo card so sorry about that.

They are having a private wedding in his home and his son-in-law will be the officiant and my Aunt and Uncle will also be there.  Very quiet and personal like they want.  My grandma is wearing a gorgeous pink dress she has owned for about 20 years.  She never changes.  I wish I could go but they live many States away.

I hope you were inspired by my story today and enjoyed my card.  
Have a wonderful day!
