In case you couldn't tell, I'm the little cutie second from the right.
It's crazy to watch how we're all growing up. Mary-Jane (28) makes a difference in the lives of young ladies as a basketball coach and as a youth leader, while slowly taking over the family biz. Natalie (26) will be moving to Macon, Georgia soon for the great new job she's been waiting for. And Gary (18) is about to graduate high school and join me at UAB in the fall. It's all just so surreal to think about!
Not a day goes by where I don't wish they were here in Birmingham with me. Of course when I'm at home they drive me crazy, but I love them with every last bit of my heart. It's weird to admit, but my parents and siblings really are my best friends, and every day I'm so thankful for the great relationship we all have with each other.
Only one more week until I can finally go home for a few days again. How did people even begin to cope with this feeling before the modern marvel of cellphones existed?! My mind can't even comprehend it.
