Oh my stars, all those kids, grandkids, great grandkids, great great grandkids, & she's still sane.
What a Saint this woman must be. And I'm serious. The patience she must posses.

Kathy, think of how good her memory must be to remember them all! We have 7 granddaughters and although we can remember their names ... lol ... every time we have to remember years of birth, I have a set date in my mind that I work to and fro from.

Just imagine needing to remember all those children`s birthdays, and the presents !!! wow.

Bless her, I hope she gets her wish & lives another 10 years and more.
So long as she`s got her health, and such a wonderful family, then thats all that matters.
