…including myself. Each week I introduce you to another friend at Mary Gran Nursing and Rehab. This week, I think you should know about the storyteller.
I have been a registered nurse for 23 years and married to a hardworking, God-fearing husband for 21 years. I have been blessed with overall good health for my family and friends. But my story really doesn’t start until God decided I should be mom to Savannah Brooke Honeycutt; she is my story.
My husband and I met Savannah when she was five months old. I knew then I was going to be her mom. I had always prayed that I would be a mom but it had never happened. Once I met Savannah, I understood why. Not only did I pray to the Lord to let me be a mother to a little girl, I even wanted her named to be Savannah. Little did I know, he had it all worked out already.
Savannah has been the reason I wake up each morning; the reason I try to live a life pleasing to the Lord. She is my purpose in this life. I wanted to be her mom because she needed someone; little did I know it was me who needed her. Today Savannah is 18 years old. She is currently a sophomore at Campbell University and will be pursuing a law degree. There are not enough words in Webster’s dictionary to explain how my husband and I feel about her or about how proud we are of her and all she has accomplished in her short life.
So when my day comes to be in a nursing home, I hope someone will ask me what my story is. There will be no telling what Savannah will have accomplished by then.
My favorite quote is, “People may forget what you said, people may forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou
