Yesterday was Audrey's birthday. Audrey is my paternal grandmother. I think I miss my grandmas more and more as I grow older.
A photo of Audrey about 4 years before the newspaper article below was written.
I wasn't sure which direction I wanted to take with this blog post until I found this article yesterday on Newspapers.com:
Wednesday, 9 Nov 1960, Miami (Oklahoma) Daily News-Record
Mam (Audrey) always was a helper. She raised her four children but then she also raised four grandchildren, three nephews, and a brother-in-law. I knew about her grandchildren living with her- they were my cousins and one of the reasons I enjoyed going to Mam's house often. I had no idea that she had raised three nephews and a brother-in-law, though. So there is a lot to find out about Mam and all the ways she helped people. I'm still gathering stories if you'd like to send me yours.
I apologize for the brevity of this post but real life gets in the way sometimes. I promise to deliver lots of stories on Wednesday to go with this theme and the newspaper article I found. I'm looking forward to it. I hope you are as well. (On Wednesday I was planning to tell you about new information I've received on people I've blogged about in the past. That will be pushed back to later in the week- maybe Friday.)
