On This Day, in 1909…

Edna & Lila, cousins ~ wading through the flooded cornfields in Boswell, Oklahoma

Today I am thinking of Lila Jane Warren.  My “grandma”.  (on the right)  She was born on July 3, 1909.  I think this may be the only childhood photo I have of her. Though the pic is old and faded, see her smile?  It certainly never faded.  You never left her house hungry OR empty-handed.  She loved you and anyone that happened to be with you.  She and Grandpa Bug raised eight pretty remarkable kids, too.  They lived through some tough times.  But much like the picture above, no matter how deep or murky life got, she just stepped a little higher, smiled, and moved forward.  What great life lessons she has left with us.  So, Happy Birthday, Grandma!  I miss you everyday.  Till we meet again~ ♥

    Grandma Warren was awesome! Never sent me away empty handed, and always had hot Dr. Pepper in the kitchen.

    I miss my “grammy” to-born 1897-died 1993-she lived next door to me as a child, and I live in the house she raised my mom in now-I wrote down a lot of her stories. I hope to write some of them in my blog one day. Great memorial to her.

  8. Such a sweet remembrance!
