A Tribute to My Gram
As I sat in the waiting room of my doctor's office today I listened as two little old men reminisced about the past. They talked about when they bought their homes and how much the city of McLean had changed since 1950. They chatted about their gardens and the wars they were in. As I listened, they really made me smile and remember the chats I used to have with my Grandma Marie. She taught me so many life lessons and there is not a day that goes by that I do not think about her. She always used to say to me "Missy Po each year you get older the faster the time goes, so cherish the time you have." There have been so many times since she has passed that I wished I could pick up the phone and give her a call. Even though I can't, I know in my heart that she is and will always be with me. So, in honor of Mother's day this weekend...I want to thank my "gram" for all the lessons, guidance, love, smiles, and hugs she gave me. Thanks Gram, I love you.
