Sweet Mary

08 Aug

My friend and co-worker, Mary, has been taking charge of her battle with breast cancer from Day 1. I am continuously inspired by her and would like you all to meet her, even if only through my humble words.

This Mary girl I know
is stubborn and strong
she charts her own course
and sails against adversity with courage

This Mary girl I know
fights with elegance and dignity
though weak moments get her down
each day is welcomed with a smile

This Mary girl I know
shines beautifully
through her compassion, her grace
enriching the lives of those who call her friend

This Mary girl I know
never falters, never wanes
her determination is admirable
and her enthusiasm for life and family contagious

This Mary girl I know
such a fortress and backbone
for those who love and rely on her
her strength is impressed upon those closest to her heart

This Mary girl I know
is a blessing
though she would shy away at the compliment
many would concur

This Mary girl I know
is really quite remarkable
I’m sure you would agree
if ever you are privileged to meet
this Mary girl I know
