There are so many songs that I like but the one that most represents me has a line that says “Lord you’ve been mighty good to me.” That is so true of my life, of course I’ve seen bad times and had heartache and sorrow just like anyone else. The thing is I’ve learned to count my blessings instead of dwelling on the bad. If we look around and see all the good that God has and does still give us.
I was blessed to have my sister, Betty Jean. She has gone home to be with Jesus and I know she is waiting for me. She and I shared so many things and music was a strong bond between us. She would hear a song she liked or buy a new CD then call me on the phone and play it so I could hear and vice versa.
Even though we lived in different states we talked at least once a week. Thank God for Alexander Graham Bell. We laughed and talked a lot; sometimes we’d be on the phone for over an hour. Our husbands asked “How can you find so much to talk about?” But unless you’ve been that close to someone you just plain can not understand. We shared everything good or bad; we could tell each other anything. I know she carried some of my secrets to her grave and I will do the same.
Yes Betty Jean was my sister but she was also my best friend. There are times I miss her almost more than I can bear; I’ll hear a song and think “I want Betty Jean to hear that.” I was so blessed to have her and I know we will be together again. I hope you have someone like this in your life. If so tell them how much they mean to you and always tell them you love them; God did not promise us tomorrow so you might not get another chance.
Thank you for stopping by. Please come back soon. God bless.
