Well, if this is a true story, I think God has blessed you double! You inherited his writing talent, and you have progressed by writing down his ideas. Isn't that just how God works? You can't outgive him! By the way, I think your Opa advanced you right out of Beginners without you realizing it! Your story was simply told and heartfelt. You can't get any better than that! Congratulations!
