A heart in repair....

My Aunt NiEata had a triple bypass heart surgery yesterday morning. It was a very long and tedious surgery. 4 1/2 hours later, the doctor comes out. They had to add another bypass, making it a quadruple bypass.

This is a setback, but we are all praying for a speedy recovery for her. I know that God is overseeing all of this, and pretty soon she will feel better than ever.

My Aunt is one of the most special people in my life, and always has been. She has always taken to me as if I were her very own daughter. I always felt beautiful and loved around her. She always made it a point to tell me how pretty I looked, and how I was her very "favorite".

You don't forget those kinds of things,ever. Especially hearing them as a little girl. Wreaking with insecurity and low self esteem as a teenager, her words always lifted my spirits and encouraged my soul.

I love you, Aunt NiEata. My children love you. You are one exceptional lady.

Your heart needed a little repair because of all of the giving and loving that it has poured out over these past 60 years. It will be better than ever now.

forever your girl,
