The Red Aunt

 

My Aunt Virginia was born in 1929, had red hair and was like a second mom to us kids. Red hair…my brothers called her the red aunt, 1929…she convinced us she was always 29!! She and Uncle Joe adopted when we were a bit older – so first she spoiled us and then we spoiled their kids. Aunt Virginia helped me with my sewing projects, helped Mom with us kids and Uncle Joe on the farm gathering eggs and driving tractors. When they moved to Florida for Aunt Virginia’s health we missed them in so many ways.

This past week my sisters and I flew to Florida to visit Aunt Virginia. She turns 29 plus 61 years old this year.   What a great visit – telling stories, catching up, laughing till we cried and loving on a lady who loved on us. Happy 90th birthday, Aunt Virginia.

Who has been an influence in your life? Call them and tell them you love them.

1 Corinthians 13:13 But the greatest of these is love.
