When we were first married, I worked in the most wonderful store. (I made no money. But! I bought a TON of fabulous things.)

The best part of that wonderful store was the {even more wonderful} women with whom I worked. It's where I met Beverly. She is the kind of woman that you meet and then want to be. She's smart. Witty. Wise. Classy. Composed. She's a Proverbs 31 kind of gal.

She has six children. Six of the most obedient, good natured, kind, honest, well adjusted, self confident children on this planet. They are all grown now....and they are just what I want my kids to I want my kids to turn out.

She has this way with's hard to describe. There isn't an angry person that she can't calm. A naughty child that she can't tame. A lofty puffed up snoot that she can't bring down a peg. A down-trodden outcast she can't uplift.

I miss you, Beverly.

Ah. Beverly. Beverly! Everyone needs a Beverly.

Everyone does needs a Beverly. I long to be that kind of person and know in my heart I can't ever be, but I do so love to be in the presence of one.

She was a just what you said. Someday I hope to be that kind of person for someone.

Hello! I found your blog via the CWO blogroll and I clicked on the link just because I like your blog title! I know what you mean about needing a "Beverly"... I have had a few of those in my life, and I am so thankful for them.

Oh, I meant to comment (the above comment) from my other blog... where I share more about my Christian faith. The "Artwork" blog is just that and I don't ever really post personal stuff there. You can actually "get to know me" a little better at Charm & Grace Cottage Blog.
