My Aunt Wanda




My Aunt Wanda was the reason for my trip to Virginia last week. She is my Mom's sister, and is the only sibling left out of 5. She was the oldest of the children and celebrated her 87th birthday this past May 10th. She is the mother to 4 sons, the Grandmother and Great Grandmother to many. Her husband, my Uncle Frankie, died about 12 years ago and she manages to fill her time with her family, her yard, her church, volunteering and traveling. She is a remarkable woman to say the least. As you can see from the pictures above, she continues to work in her yard and leads the life of someone in the 60's. I have a lot of admiration for her and can only hope that I have inherited her genes. I feel an extra sense of closeness to her now that my Mom is gone and I think she feels the same way about me. I just wanted to share this amazing woman with you through my blog. Thanks for reading!
