Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

Finish Line

January 13, 2007


I’ve always thought of my sister as slightly superhuman, and so it seemed fitting today to see her receive her cape as a part of the conferral of her Master’s in Education from Graceland University (which, I was relieved to learn, predates the less informed and more gaudy house in Memphis, Tennessee). Aunt Pammy’s hair was perfect, she was beautiful (as always), the day featured a light dusting of snow, and her adoring fans gathered around her to cheer her on. The hoots from her family’s section must have been a bit embarrassing, but she took it all in stride.

And now, nine hours later, my grin of pride is still beaming away. She’s quite a woman, my sister.

    Hey Mike, Stacy and sweet Ella,
    We made it home in the snow storm.
    So glad we got to see you! The boys kept saying, “Ella is so cool!” They love their cous!
