Last week I had the honor of celebrating my Gammy’s 90th Birthday. Friends and family drove in from all over to wish her congratulations and celebrate with her. I even pulled my oldest son out of school to make the trip to Birmingham with me. Gammy has blessed my life in more ways than I can count. Growing up with her in my life absolutely helped to shape the woman I am today.
In my line of work, I have the privilege of meeting seniors every day who have fascinating life stories to tell and wisdom to share. One of my very favorite parts of my job is talking to seniors about their lives. They each have a story to tell and so much insight to share.
I hope to pass this same blessing onto my own children and encourage you to do the same. Think about your aging neighbor, someone at your church or even visitng the nursing home. I promise it will benefit your children as much as it will benefit that senior. Seniors have so much love to give and wisdom to share, if we simply spend the time to listen and receive it.
Happy 90th Birthday Gammy!! We love you!
