Today is a very special day. It’s my grandma birthday! Gloria Jean would have been 76 today. My heart is full of admiration when I reflect on the life lessons she taught me, the spiritual wisdom she instilled in me, and the unconditional love she showed me. What I miss most about her is her beautiful spirit.
As a little girl, I looked forward to spending the weekend with my grandparents. Whether it was cleaning up around the house or doing yard work, I just wanted to be in my grandma's presence. As she watched her old western movies, I would run, jump and slide in the bed with her almost as if I was stealing home base in a softball game. I would lay on her chest and throw my arm across her stomach.
Gram taught me to be confident, classy, and encouraged me to follow my dreams and pursue my passion. She is the inspiration behind my website. Several people ask me why I named my website V41. Its paying homage to Gloria Jean! She drove a black Eldorado, which was so her personality. She had custom license plates that had V41 on both the front and back plate. V, for her last name and 41, the year she was born. Happy Birthday my beautiful Angel!
