“WOW!” “This beautiful little “IRISH-AMERICAN” girl…”MARIE AGNES BRADY” – – is “One Hundred and Fifteen years old!” (115)
On the …”fourgrandmas.com” – Marie Brady is the third in order of the Four Grandmas. So that everyone will know who the “FOUR GRANDMAS” are – – – just thought that I would – – and in honor of Marie’s BIRTHDAY on the 25th of September – – let everyone have a reminder – so the first of our four Grandmas is the one who came to America… from England with three daughters – and she was…Anne Smart. And so LUCKY… that one of the three daughters – – would find and marry Mr. Brady who come over from IRELAND. “How do you like that – they both came from other Countries – and found the one and only person here in AMERICA – to marry and be forever HAPPY!
The second Grandmas… to be a great influence on all of us – is one of the three daughters, Anne Elizabeth Smart Brady – – mother to little MARIE.
We are “LUCKY” that – little MARIE was a survivor – – as she was number thirteen (13) – – and the last child born in the BRADY FAMILY. Those were the days when it was beneficial to have a large FAMILY – – The only thing in the case of my MOTHER… coming into a large FAMILY – – and her MOTHER being so old… was… that so many people thought that little MARIE …was surly the daughter of one of the older brothers – – – who were already married at the time of MARIE”s birth!
So… continuing… in the order of the Four Grandmas – little MARIE is the third of the four. Now – – with “NUMBERS” – – – – I said that little MARIE was the 13th – and “LUCKY” – guess what day of SEPTEMBER that I was born??? LUCKY 13 – – and I was he first (1st) of six (6) children. So… was I “LUCKY” … or was my MOTHER ???
Now it comes to the last of the four GRANDMAS – the fourth of the four – is “ME”… and I am so glad that – I was named “MARY ELLEN” – because…what ever question is asked – – I can always answer …”ME!” I do not have to go into a long ordeal as to who I am – – as it is always – plain and simple “ME” is “ME” – – and – then – with a very distinctive voice – – everybody knows – and for sure… who I am…little old ME!
“Thanks – MOM for being YOU – and that you were LUCKY… to have “ME” – – and that I can always tell the world – that I am so blessed – just to be your daughter, makes me extra HAPPY… that I have to always … and mean always remember to – WHOM is in charge of this world – – and that the CREATOR gave to me – the best FAMILY to be a part of – and I am always glad to tell the world!
