A day brightener for me...

The first thing I do getting up in the AM is have a cup of coffee and check my email. I subscribe to a local newspaper and will get breaking news. This morning's headline to check was one that a student from the local high school was chosen as a semi-finalist in the National Merit awards. Normally, I would just pass-over it but I do have a grandson who would have been eligible to apply. Lo and behold, the article concerned him! Neither he or his parents were aware and I got to spread the news. Finalists will be chosen in February. Whether he gets to be a finalist or goes further to get one of the scholarships that are offered is inconsequential at this point, getting this far is prestigious enough.
