Today is my Aunt Mae's 90th birthday. I've written about Aunt Mae before. She is one of my favorite persons. Her perseverance in spite of health problems, the frailities of old age, and the deaths of loved ones is a true example of "enduring to the end."
Up until recently, Aunt Mae kept up a large correspondence, sending cards to her friends, members of her congregation, strangers whom she had heard needed an extra dose of love, and those incarcerated in prison. She participated in a prayer list, opened her home to those who needed a meal, and generally brought joy to all those with whom she came in contact.
Aunt Mae has given her all and continues to give simply by being herself.
Joy for today: knowing and loving Aunt Mae.
