MAGGIE MAE. MY FRIEND

MAGGIE MAE. MY FRIEND

I WOULDN’T KNOW HOW TO BEGIN TO TELL YOU WHAT THIS WOMAN HAS MEANT TO ME. SHE JUST CELEBRATED HER 90TH BIRTHDAY . FROM THE TIME I MET HER SHE HAS BEEN ONE OF THE GODLIEST WOMEN IVE KNOWN. SHE HAS TAUGHT ME SO MANY THINGS.. ONE OF WHICH I CHERISH EVERYDAY AND THAT IS HOW TO TELL A FLANNELGRAPH STORY AND HAVE A LOVE FOR CHILDRENS SOULS. I LIKE TO THINK IM CARRYING ON FOR HER.. SHE NEVER SAID I CANT DO THAT TO ANY NEW CRAFT, SHE OIL PAINTED, QUILTED, PLAYED THE GUITAR, COOKED, CROCHETED AND MUCH MORE.. SHE LOVED TO GO HUNTING, FISHING AND HUCKLEBERRY PICKING AND MY KIDS LOVED TO GO WITH HER.. I REMEMBER ONE TIME WE WENT HUCKLEBERRY PICKING AND NATHAN PRETENDED TO BE ASLEEP IN THE BACK SEAT OF HER JEEP SO HE COULD HEAR HER “ROY STORYS” SHE LOVED TO HAVE COMPANY ON SUNDAY DINNER AND IF YOU WERE LUCK ENOUGH TO GET INVITED YOU GOT TO TASTE THE MOST SCRUMPTIOUS FRIED CHICKEN. SHE IS IN THE NURSING HOME NOW BUT HER LOVE FOR GOD AND SOULS HAS NOT DEMINISHED, LAST TIME I VISITED HER SHE TOLD ME .. THERES A MAN IN HERE AND HE TOLD ME HE JUST TREATED EVERYONE LIKE HE WANTED TO BE TREATED AND HE THOUGHT THAT WAS GOOD ENOUGH, BUT MAGGIE MAE SAID OH NO SIR, YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN… AND HE ASKED HER TO PRAY FOR HIM.. MAGGIE MAE I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK…
