Thinking Of You

I’m thinking of you today Grandmama. On your birthday. Today, you would have been 100 years old. I can’t count the number of times you would sit on your front porch and tell me, “Baby, don’t worry about these men. Get your education first. The men will be there.”

Just wanted to let you know that I did what you told me to do. I listened. I waited. I found a good one. The last one you met. The only one you met. He was a keeper. A man of good character.

Thank you for pushing me, encouraging me, supporting me, and loving me. I wish you could have been at our wedding. You would have loved the white and purple tulips. I just miss you. All of you. I love you. Happy Birthday.

With Love, Dr. KL ❤
