An Amazing Woman!







Look at this incredible picture of my Grandma and Grandpa with 10 of their GREAT-GRANDKIDS!!! (and one more was added since then). This wonderful woman, Doreen Kennan, started it all...with an adoring husband of 60 years!!

On her 84th birthday, Grandma is young at heart and spry as can be. Entertaining friends, hosting bridge, volunteering at Kaiser weekly, and traveling to see family are only a handful of events in this busy lady's life. And don't think you're going to beat her in a game of cards...
I am so blessed to have her example in my life! I have never heard a negative word or a hint of complaining when life gets hard. She's taught me that a sense of humor and an optimistic attitude will get you far and make life a little easier. And oh, the joy of laughter! Grandma is always great to share a good laugh with!
I love you Grandma!! Have a wonderful Birthday!!

Hi Sweetie = I just read your sweet blog that you wrote about me. That was so special and I loved it and thanks for the tribute. I hope I'm worth it. It was fun to hear the kids sing Happy Birthday. Oodles of love, Nana

Grandma Kennan is the BEST! You meet her once and you want to adopt her for your own!
