The strength I have seen, continue to see and hear about Maybelle inspires me. Maybelle has the physical and emotional strength of no other person I have ever met. As she fights another battle, cancers a bitch.
Maybelle has had the pleasure of knowing me since I was born, she talks of how small I was and of coarse cute. Besides working with my father for many years for newspaper in town, Maybelle is also my parents dear friend. She will always be a part of my family.
The first thing that pops into my head at the mention of her name is the stories she tells me of my mother. Maybelle has so many positive and funny stories to tell about my mother. These stories are the reason I see my mother in a non alcaholic light at times, because i dont seem to recall many sober memories.All of those storiws even if there is a little darkness in one,there is often something to laugh about. I always look forward to listening to them, even if it’s the same one sometimes.
The second thing that makes Maybelle so special is her get it done, hard work and fun attitude. She maybe be small in size, height and weight but she is a feisty little thing, isn’t afraid to tell you what’s what and isn’t afraid to get a little dirty. Maybelle is often so funny and can brighten many of my days.
This battle that has brought you the biggest storm has made me dig into my past and constantly remind me how grateful I am to know you. You have beaten so many challenges in your life,you inspire me.
I Thank her for all those stories, and more stories that I have yet to hear. She have never once said any bad things to me about my mother and that has told me alot about her. She is a great friend,someone I look up to.
Maybelle may you keep giving me strength to see the postive in my past.
I love you. ❤
