THIS FAT OLD LADY WOULD LIKE A HEART OF GOLD

linda and me

 

The people I admire most in my personal world are those who are truly and graciously giving of themselves.

I wish I had that kind of big heart, but I must admit I don’t.

Yes, I can be kind and thoughtful, but there is a limit. I am protective of myself, my time and my resources. If I choose to give of myself, I guaranty that it is open hearted and with no expectation of recompense. But if I choose to give of myself, I can also pretty much guaranty that the choice has been well thought out.

I will protect myself and my own first. I don’t believe this is a bad thing, I just recognize that those who are always giving are special in a way I am not.

My sister Linda would be at the top of my selfless/generous list.

I don’t mean she is perfect (not by a long shot, the stories I could (and might) tell) but she is truly good hearted, and I admire that so much.

So, I guess I do have a heart of gold – it’s just not mine, it’s my sister’s.

  1. OK, I missed this one somehow. It made me cry. Love you, sis! And thank you so much for the wonderful gift of your glorious voice to our daughter at her wedding. Everyone I have played it for is in awe! I’m so proud to be your sister . . .
