Happy birthday, Mom...2010
It's hard to express how much she meant to me over the course of her life, and how the lessons she taught me have molded me. She ran her tail off when I was growing up to make sure my sisters and I were always where we were supposed to be. And as I grew into adulthood, she was someone I could always talk to. The most important lesson she taught me was how to deal with the deepest pain of life, as I saw her faith remain strong after her child went to be with the Lord at the young age of 35. They are together now, and that makes me glad.
Since it is so hard to express, I want to pay tribute to her by sharing the audio of a magnificent tribute to her from my cousin Chip. Chip loved his "Aunt Margie" so much and it was fitting for him to describe her life as we celebrated it days after her passing. He did an amazing job of summing up what her life was about. If you have 10 minutes, you can listen to it below. If not, come back later when you do. If you knew her or know any of us, her family, it'll be worth it. Here it is...
Happy birthday, Mom! I miss you but I'll see you soon.
