Have you ever watched a movie like The Karate Kid and thought, Man, I wish I had a Mr. Miyagi. Someone who would appear in your life when you’re lost. Or your spirit is crushed. Or you don’t know who you are or what your supposed to be. Well…..Only she is a Mrs. Miyagi. And not Asian. And she isn’t a secret Karate genius (….I don’t think….). She is Cathy Lyn. I won’t go into the whole story because this is her birthday card, and at this point in her life, she remembers the whole story. When she’s old enough to forget it (which won’t be for DOZENS of years), THEN I’ll write it all out for her. And maybe do a jig to keep her entertained…..
The short version is that we’ve been together in the good….….and the bad……
…and all the years I’ve known her she has served so many people so faithfully. But she has gone beyond with me. Somehow, even though her wings are full of family and work and life, she has managed to sprout a little extra wing for me.
