PAD, Day 16 - snapshot

You rock, Grandma Jean!
Still doin' chores and bakin'
Perseverin', strong
Oh my gorsh! You're choppin' wood!
Survivin' on your own

Even though she's survivin' and perserverin', Gramma misses all her loved ones too!!

Such a lovely tribute to your grandma! And look at her, still chopping wood at her age! I love old people and their tenacity. Makes me aspire to be just as lively and full of life at 80 as I am now. Thanks for sharing!
