Like Scarlett O’Hara standing in her burned mansion…where her home…her heart once lived. I too find myself in ruins-not quite demolition…but a yearning to simplify my life so I can focus more on my purpose. Everything I’ve built around me…all the pretty things…that I feel once defined me…now seem so insignificant. I am beginning a new phase…finding my purpose and I know it involves my grandmother I never knew. And so, today I begin…Reviving Margaret.
A good story has to have a good beginning…and I am on a mission now to uncover Margaret’s beginning. For one to have been born and live and die and never be spoken of again…especially to have lived -at least in the physical -such a short life…is a tragedy. I believe every life is a story. We are all, as my friend Patty once told me – a link in the chain for the people God places in our path. And for me to have carried with me since a young age, a desperate desire to uncover the secrets of Margaret’s life- I know this is part of my purpose…to be the link that closes the chain – the story of Margaret and the impact her story has had on my life – and when I’m finally able to decipher it all ~I hope this story will give healing, hope, happiness, closure, and an awakening of a relationship between my daddy and his dreams ~that always seem to be on hold.
