I wanted to feature a real Proper Southern Woman. Grayson is full of grace and strength. She may have some physical limitations, but she has no limits on her spirit. Her version of "This Little Light of Mine" by Addison Road will lift you up. Knowing her mom, I can tell you that the pine cone doesn't fall far from the tree. Take some time this week and think about how your light can shine.
I was watching Jeopardy last week when my dream category came up. Yes, it was an entire category devoted to the great state of Alabama. And to beat all, it contained a Daily Double. My memory is failing me on the details, but I remember that the person had a decent amount of money. I told my husband that I would have sent the world into a panic. I would have called for a true Daily Double even if I had $20,000. The question was about the Saturn V rocket and the person missed it. For those of you who do not know, you can thank the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL for the Saturn V rocket. Yes, Alabamians sent man to the moon. Okay, Wernher Von Braun wasn't exactly from Dogtown, AL but we are claiming it. The next time you get the urge to ask if we wear shoes or have cars, please refrain. Southerners sent folks to the moon. Beat that Jersey.
