Celebrated every year on August 21, National Senior Citizen Day was created as a day to show appreciation, honor and support our seniors. Which means today, we honor our two seniors, Sophie and Teutul.
Not only are they beautiful white-faced babies with hearts of gold, Sophie and Tut are also my two failed fosters. Each came with their own story of survival, and each quickly stole our hearts and our home.
Today I am also thinking about the spunkiest senior I've ever known, my Grandmother.
Nana would have celebrated her 95th birthday this past Thursday. It's hard to believe nearly 13 years have passed since we said goodbye.
Who are you honoring and celebrating today? My list could go on and on, but I refuse to think of my parents as "seniors." After all, I'm not old enough to have parents that old, am I?
