I’ve met many people in my life and some left something ingrained within me. Some it didn’t take a lot of time or a lot of words, they just had a sudden impact on my life. Others may of had a more subtle manner, but still left a profound message for me.
My oldest sister was ten years older than me. Although she stood four feet and eleven inches, she is my “big sister”. My sister knew a language that transcends from her to me. Her laughter was so honest that even if it was at my expense it could bring me to belly aching laughter. She could relate to me the consequences of things better than anyone else was capable of doing.
She successfully raised seven honest, working, and respectful children. She loved God and participated in her church’s activities regularly. The last night I saw her, she was walking toward the stairs to enter the church. She turned and recognized me driving past, she flagged me to a stop and then she shouted “boy you better get your fat head in the church”! She had a big smile when she said it, but she usually did, and that was the last time I saw her awake.
When I think about flowers I never consider them drying, crumbling, or dying. I remember them robust and the thanks and joy that they are connected with.
