Wise and Wonderful

I hope that everyone has a role model they can emulate.  Who is yours? 

I have Aunt Helen, ninety years young. She is faithful and fun, wise and wonderful. She lives in celebration of everything.  Whatever life presents, she goes on with a bright outlook.  She reads.  She is smart.  She sees the best in others.  She finds the courage and strength each day to find the good, to forgive and to move on.  When I get tired of life's burdens, I think of Aunt Helen, who is ready to embrace her gift of today.  

She is my bright and beautiful, my wise and wonderful star.

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Do you have an Aunt Helen, a brave Steel Magnolia in your life?

Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

    Aunt Helen is all that and more. And it’s obvious that you have followed her example.
