My maternal grandmother, born Agnes Mercer Holland on this day in 1889, was an extraordinary woman. She grew up in a tiny community in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains of northern California, the youngest of three children. She raised eight children of her own and touched the lives of so many more as a grandparent, nurse and friend. Today is a celebration of her birth and her special place in history as a caregiver. We miss her but we remember all of the time she gave to us!
