Golden Girls Birthday Celebration

Yes, the Golden Girls celebrated their birthdays. They had a great time. I had to post their pictures of them wearting Tiaras that I made them. Arn't they precious. Thats my Mom on the left, then Aunt Adelaide, and last but not least, Aunt Doll. Below are seperate pictures of that my brother took.


My Aunt Addie, above, is having to move into an Assistant living lodging in 2 weeks. She has lived by herself in a beautiful apartment for the last 14 years. Unfortnately she is almost blind from Macular Degeneration and her children do not want her to live on her on. She doesn't want to live with them as they have tried to get her to move in with them. She had 4 children and 2 of her children have past away already. She had a daughter who died first while in her 50s of a brain tumor and a son who died a few years ago in his 60s of bladder cancer. But she has a very large family with all her grandchildren and great grandchildren and a couple of great, great grandchildren. She is not happy about having to move into Assistant Living. My mother feels that she will not live much longer after she moves there. I hope she is wrong.
I get very tearful when I look at these wonderful, strong women who have been we me all my life. And I know that too soon the day will come when they will disappear from my life, one at a time. But I will always have great memories of them and know that one day I will see them again.

They are just fabulous golden girls! I hope your aunt will enjoy her new place. Some people just love living in those homes as some can be absolutely invigorating with so much to do for them. I love your pages! xo
