A friend of mine passed away yesterday.  She was 91 years old and a very interesting lady.  She lived more graciously than most – never complained about any circumstance she faced, always supported the leaders around her, and gave of herself to others.

My mom was much like my friend.  Both of them were behind the scenes workers, never demanding, nor wanting, the spotlight.  Both were encouragers, supporters and fans of others.  Both were exceptionally gracious in the hart of hostessing.  Both loved their families, whether immediate or extended.  Both were walkers and had very strong hearts.

I hope I am like them – even a little bit.
