My Word of the Month poem for April

Hi everyone,

Here is my offering for April. The word is GIRLS.

A Little Girl Is . . .

Daddy’s angel,
Mommy’s joy,
Brother’s brat –
But he’s a boy.

Granny’s love,
Pa’s sugar pie,
Brother’s pest –
But he’s a guy.

Auntie’s darling,
Uncle’s sugar,
Brother’s snot –
But he eats boogers.

But don’t try anything
Funny, mister.
He’s her brother!
She’s his sister!”

Meet my sister Jule

Hi everyone,

First time I met Jule she was a baby and I was fifteen. When I held her, I was completely charmed. When she went to sleep in my arms, the deal was sealed. I knew for sure and certain that she was my sister.

Today Jule Egleston is a mother and grandmother, and my sister. She is business manager for the Monett Times in Monett, Missouri. I’m proud of her in the way that big brothers are allowed to be. She’s also fighting pancreatic cancer. This week she spent six hours taking her second of six 6-hour sessions of chemotherapy. The first one made her sick. We’re hoping she gets along better this time.

My sister is a brave soul. I believe she will whip this thing. But even brave souls can use a little support. If you pray, I ask you to pray for her. If not, then please keep her in your thoughts. Either way, I thank you.
