Hilarious. Thats how I decribe her…
Her name is Christy and she has been forced to be my sister via marriage to my oldest brother for a full decade. She is also the mother of my two oldest nephews who are now 10 and 8 1/2 respectively.
When asked to name off people I admire in this world, Christy always comes to mind. She is a person with a deep commitment to joy, to God, to laughter, to healing, to her marriage, to her children, to her sister Anna, to her dog Cougar ( not so much to their dog Luke), to truth, and to Shirley Temples.
To meet Christy you would never know the hardships that she has been through and the hand that life has dealt. Christy is a champion of a person, not ever succumbing to the victim mentality, and always choosing to heal, choosing to be happy, choosing to move forward in the direction of the life she dreams of. I adore her and am so thankful that she is a part of my family.
A day spent with Christy is a day spent laughing full of impassioned conversations about everything from faith and morality in today’s world to Justin Timberlake to the benefits of organic foods and the merits of a steam cleaner.
Christy, you are a brave and honest woman. The way you face the world with laughter and a steadfast commitment to what is right is inspiring. I love you and am forever grateful that my brother took you line dancing. Thank you for standing up with me as a bridesmaid as I get married to the good Dr. D. You are an inspiration and a joy.
