This is Liz:
and this is still further proof that bad things happen to the BEST people.
In truth, this leg has been the least of Liz’s trials in the past year, but no matter what is happening on her own life, Liz always, always has a ready smile, a hug and a word of compassion for everyone who passes her way.
Liz is the sort of friend that senses you are having a bad day from across the room or across the neighborhood. She’ll make her way to you, say the perfect thing, deliver the perfect note, send the perfect flower and inevitably make you cry. She’s probably inspired enough tears to fill the Great Salt Lake.
Here’s her secret: Liz sees the best in you. She looks past every flaw, every preconceived notion and sees the bright and shiny, very best you that you ever hope to be. And then she inspires you to BE that person.
She is the essence of true Christian love– and really I can’t think of a better skill to cultivate.
A mother heart like Liz’s could have handled 12 kids but after 2 fabulous sons early in her marriage she just waited,
and 12 years later sweet Libby came along. She’s almost 13, the last child at home and turning out very much like her mother.
It doesn’t matter: Liz will be smiling no matter what comes her way.
