Gentleness and grace at 90

That is what I proclaim

Of this pert lady

Who works for Wendy's

And keeps her own house

Many of us will be celebrating

Come Saturday with her,

Her children and grandchildren as well

Noted for her smile and slow walk

More noted for her love of Jesus and a very generous heart

Aunt Neitha, may we both live to celebrate your turning 100!

Author's Note: Aunt Neitha is my mother's youngest sister. She is the last of the aunts and uncles on either side of my family. I treasure her more than fine gold. Aunt Neitha died this past summer (2006).  I miss her but she is now with Her Lord which is far better.
