Happy Birthday Mary ! ! !

Today is my sister, Mary's birthday!
I was 3 1/2 when Mary was born. I remember how I cried & hid in the corner when Grandma Ruby came over to stay with me while Daddy took Mama to the hospital. By the way, Mary was born on Grandma Ruby's birthday, very special indeed!!!


I chose this Happy Birthday sign for today because it brought a funny memory to mind. When I moved to college my freshman year Mary took possession of my bedroom. The year was 1970. Mary really decorated her new room with the '70s motif. She put the mattress on the floor & cut out flowers from Hallmark sacks & taped them to the door to achieve that 'flower power' look & feel. I'm sure she added some other special decorating touches that I can't remember. Oh the memories of the '70s!!!!!!!

Happy birthday sis!
I'm so proud of you for being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, & friend!
Enjoy your day girl!
I love you!

Great post! I remember when both of my older sisters went away to school in 1972 and I got to take over their room. I had so much fun decorating it too!
