E-Card for my Grandma in Iowa

This is my Grandma.
We have the same middle name. (Irene).
She graduated Valedictorian of her high school class.
With her sweetheart on their wedding day.
Here she is with my mom, pregnant with my uncle Danny
I love this picture of her with her foot up on her leg. 
This says January 1973 along the side, so my mom is 15 here. :-)
Grandma raised five children, then four more who are her grandchildren, now she cares for her mother. She  can best be described as nurturing.  She's very good at what she does, and boy does she know babies...

My Grandma used to collect owls, now she collects roosters.  I respect her a lot for changing her mind.  Sometimes you just want something different.  My Grandma likes to laugh a lot and my Grandpa likes to make her laugh.  She's a pro at entertaining, and can whip up a giant spread of food in no time.  I didn't know it, but it turns out she's the world's best cookie maker.  If you've been wondering who that is, you've found her!  {By the way, Grandma, I tried to make the chocolate chip oatmeal cookies like you said, and they did not turn out anywhere near as good as yours.}  Sometimes people just know what they're doing.  

She loves cards.  Specifically, she loves to pick out the perfect card just for the perfect occasion for someone. She sends between 10 and 15 cards a month out.  She always writes a letter to go inside or at least a nice note at the bottom of the card.  I have several cards from her hanging on a string above my window right now.  Yes, I did send her a real card. 

Like her hubby, she devours the Word of God.  She likes to wake up, drink a big glass of ice water and read her Bible.  Then you'll catch her reading it again a couple more times in the day.  Below are some memory verses she has above her sink.  She devoutly attends church and shares God's Love with others in everything she does.  
Happy Birthday, Grandma!!  We love you, love you, love you.
Hope your day is as delightful as you are!
