Weekly photo challenge: In admiration of Ruby

Birthday girl!
Birthday girl!

Show us someone or something you admire (and tell us about them, too)! 

This week’s photo challenge is all about admiration.  

As we’ve just been to see my mother-in-law to help celebrate her birthday, I thought I’d share a few words about Ruby!

R – Reflective, reliable, responsible, resplendent and rational – a calming influence, willing to share her wisdom with all

U – Unique, upbeat, unruffled, understanding and unimpeachable – dealing with all of life’s unfairness in her own way

B –  Bright, brave, bereaved and a beautiful person inside and out

Y – Young at heart – always!

We always enjoy spending time with Ruby & Les and it was just the way she wanted to celebrate – family, nibbles and games!  I’m sure you will join me in wishing Ruby a very happy birthday.  I admire her for all sorts of reasons – the words above just scratch the surface.

Ruby often wrote each of my daughters an acrostic poem for their birthdays, so I thought I’d write one for her on her birthday too!

          1. Debbie, would you mind if I linked to this post in my own Weekly challenge post. You’ve inspired me to do something very similar for my mum and I love the idea of your acrostic poem.
