30 January 2008
Sixty-Five years ago today, my grandma was born.
I figure you can still remember someone's birthday after they've passed away.
30 January is alot more pleasant than 6 March in my book.
My grandma taught me so much through her actions.
She showed me what inner beauty was, and she was the most beautiful lady I've ever known or hope to know. She showed me who Jesus was, and what it meant to literally walk and talk with Him. She showed me what true love was. She showed me that the greatest sense of joy comes from selfless giving. She showed me what it meant to sing. Sing from the soul. She showed me what a smile is. She showed me what it meant to live.
Since I really do not know what to say to express how much she meant to me, I'll just give a quote from an article a good friend of mine wrote that included a reference to her and what she meant to those that knew her.
"I think of Dorcas Myers, a dear friend, a loving mother and a cherished grandmother. A lady whose smile could light up any room and who always made you feel like you were the most important person in the room. I can still see that smile looking through her screen door as she would wave to me. Dorcas Myers never made the cover of Vogue, she was never on David Letterman or recognized by the President, but she lived a life greater than herself. She lived a life for others and the fruit of her sacrificial spirit is daily seen in the life of her daughter, Mrs. Lenita."
Someday she'll show me what Heaven is.
Happy Birthday Grandma.
