Happy 100th!!!!!!!

I just wanted to say "Happy Birthday" to my two grand-aunts (my paternal grandfather's sisters)...  They are identical twins who turned !!!!100!!!!  today!   Although they've had some problems recently, they are still "sharp as tacks" as my Mammow used to say.  :-) 

Can you imagine being born prematurely in 1910, weighing less than 2 pounds each, being fed raw egg and honey from a handkerchief dipped in the mixture, sleeping in a shoe box near the wood stove, and living to be 100??  They have had relatively few health problems, are extremely intelligent, and are wonderful Christian women who've spent their lives helping others.  They are truly an inspiration to treat each day as a gift and to help someone every chance you get.

I love you Hon and Dodi!!  You are my heroes!

It is amazing that they lived through that. Especially now that we know that honey should NOT be given to babies.
But food was more pure back then, and hadn't been tampered with as it is today.
Congratulations to them!
