missing out

Congratulations are in order for my grandmother who was inducted into the Alabama Senior Citizens Hall of Fame yesterday. In addition she was awarded the Health Professional Award for her work with AARP. The Alabama Senior Citizens Hall of Fame was created in 1983 by the Legislature to honor living citizens who have made significant contributions toward enhancing the lives of Alabama’s elderly citizens.

My parents and my brother all went to Montgomery yesterday for the ceremony. I feel a little homesick and sad I couldn't join everyone to celebrate and honor my Gran, who has been a huge driving force in my life and a big supporter of my academic goals. She's an amazing person who has a very big heart. I'm glad she's finally being recognized for her dedication to others. Here's to you Gran!
