There were several things that I was interested in "being" when I reached Adulthood. The pre-requisite mother/housewife, a nurse, school teacher, singer...
I failed miserably at anything that I tried; but the person that I most wanted to be like was my Grandma Truitt. She was awesome!
Her favorite Saint was Mary, of course.
She was the picture of love and patience. She was also the most FUN person that I had ever met, as a child. I still miss her greatly even now as an adult. Whenever she was alive, I would think of her and she would call me on the telephone. If she was thinking of me, I would ring her. Without fail.
