Chapter One-Purpose

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.

  1. Proud of you for taking this first big step! I wanted to share a book I began reading as Chris and I were moving toward divorce and that I’ve recently picked up again, Repacking Your Bags by Richard Leider and David Shapiro. The book’s message echos the sentiments behind your new path-redefining your life in a way that emphasizes the things that truly matter and letting go of things, people or ideas that no longer hold the same importance they once did. Looking forward to reading more from you!
