Happy Birthday CakeCan you imagine living to be 108 years old?  If you are only 30, you have another 78 years to go.  OH MY LORD.  That is just hard to imagine.

Well, Daisy, my grandmother has lived a century plus eight years.  Click here to see her picture.  WOW!!  The greatest part is, she is very healthy, and still has a keen sense of humor.

While I was growing up, my grandparents lived on a working farm.  They had cows, pigs, chickens, horses, donkeys, (one was named Digger) and of course barn cats and a house dog.  I remember my papa getting up very early to milk the cows, and my cousins helping to clean their stalls.  Fortunately I got away without helping there (whew), but I did help bale hay.  A few times anyway until my eyes kept swelling up from my allergy to hay.  Ha Ha, what a farmer I would make.

We also had a large and I mean LARGE garden.  We grew everything, including raspberries,  strawberries, potatoes, sweet corn, peas, carrots, onions, tomatoes, beets, beans, you name it.  We canned, and froze food from the garden for the winter months, so essentially, we lived on fresh home grown food.  Is that how Daisy has lived so healthy for so long?  I think so, and that’s why I started planting a garden again last year.  I tried to have one in Florida, but I just couldn’t get it to do very well.  It is much easier in North Carolina.

Gram gave us coffee when we were kids.  My older sister thought it was great.  I never took a liking to coffee, (still don’t) and much preferred Daisy’s favorite treat, a rootbeer float.  She also always had cookies and candy in the house.  The perfect picture of a grandmother’s house from a child’s point of view.

Gram was always busy doing something.  Tending to the animals, the garden, the house, and her hobbies, kept her happy. She thought a skill saw for a Christmas present was the greatest gift she could get.  I guess I take after her there.  She used to refurbish old buggies, and even did a stagecoach, and a sleigh.  That was the coolest thing to ride in that sleigh pulled by the horses, across the cold snow covered ground.  It was so quiet and peaceful.  When I flew a glider years later since it also was so quiet, like being a bird in the sky, I thought about that sleigh ride.  The memory of moving and yet being so quiet was vivid once again.

Daisy has done many things in her life, and filled many journals during her 108 years.  Reading those journals is really a treasure.  So many things get forgotten, and reading what she has written over the years is nothing less than fantastical.

There is no telling how many more years she will be here giving us wisdom, humor, and attitude, but however long we have the privilege, we shall certainly count them as our blessings.   Happy Birthday to my Gram Daisy Huber.  We love you, and are proud to tell the world about you.  Should they be so honored to know you too.

We would like to add your name to Daisy’s birthday card.  If you would like to, please leave a comment of your name and anything else you want to this post, and we will add it.  What do you think about 108 daisy flowers for Daisy?  If you want to help with just $1.00, click on the daisy below, and of course we will add you name to the card.
