Whether it was her cute little anecdotes or her knowledge of knowing just what to say? Or maybe it was her desire to be a godly example to those who happened to know her? Whatever it was; I was truly impressed with my Nanie. I would love to have someone compare me to her or to have God use me in the same way he used my grandmother to help and encourage those around her.
Nanie, as my grandmother’s was so affectionately called, had such a keen sense of knowing things. When I was going through a troubling situation, Nanie just happened to know to call me. God blessed my grandma with so many amazing talents. Yet she never bragged about them or pushed them on you. As we look back on all her writings, poems and genealogy work; we see her “plain humanness” in what she did. My family laughs that her poems really do not rhyme unless you read them with a New England accent. To me it just makes Nanie more original and special.
When sharing some of my writing accomplishments with my family the other day, I heard my mother say that my grandmother would love to have read my work. There it is! My inspiration for all of my future writings. That all my words would be acceptable in Nanie’s eyes and that I too may be used by God to influence and motivate others. I love and miss you Nanie!
