GRAND Magazine just named http://omasally.blogspot.com one of the Top 12 GRANDparent Blogs Award, "in recognition of your commitment to grandparents and their grandchildren while providing outstanding content. The winning blogs were chosen based on content, ease of navigation, web traffic and overall look and appeal." Thanks, GRAND!
My colleague Rosemary Carstens was absolutely right when she wrote on my Facebook page that this blog must be a joy to write. It is – especially now, capping a week when I had two Red-Letter Grandma days.
The first one was last Sunday when I was in contact with every one of my five grandchildren, either by phone or email, hearing about what they’re up to. And the second was the day before yesterday when I spent a wonderful day with Anna, the college freshman who is – happily for me – attending a university only an hour’s drive from my house. I saw her dorm room, I met her lovely roommate and another nice classmate, we had a good lunch, and lots of good conversation. I am a lucky granny indeed.
