GREETING FROM A CENTENARIAN
Brian and I have gotten some lovely greetings and well wishes in recent months pertaining to his health battle and my career retirement. But recently, a one-of-a-kind affirmation hit the mailbox.
It was a beautiful card and sweet letter from Geneva, a lifelong mentor, Sunday school teacher, Sunday school superintendent, and all-around reigning queen of my little hometown church!
You may recall a post I did way back decades ago--I mean October--when we attended the Geneva's 100th-birthday celebration.
I want to thank my little church in the wildwood, better known as Brownsville United Methodist, and those who reach out to us weekly with prayer and cards and care. Special thanks to Pastor Shelley, to card maven Marie, to friend Lois, and to the incomparable Geneva for the special attention. Thank you also to Geneva's sweet granddaughter, Evelyn, for her part.
It's not every day you hear from a centenarian, and certainly not every day that the First Lady of Brownsville sends her best.
