I wish everyone had a "Missy".

Some people just make the world a better place to be in...

One of my best friends for over 30 years is a beautiful, sweet, and funny woman named, Melissa.  We all call her "Missy".
Now, Missy is very soft spoken and nice.  I don't think she has a mean bone in her body.  But, she has the most wicked-funny sense of humor of anyone else that I know.  She can make you laugh till you cry by telling you the plot of a silly 1960's sci-fi movie, or about her crazy neighbor, who should be referred to as "He who should be imprisoned".  Missy's humor can sneak up on you and when it does, it will flatten you out!
She can tell the most ourtrageous stories that just amaze you.  One of the things that amazes you is the fact that her stories are TRUE!  She has known some of the craziest folks on this planet.  (I just realized that I am included in that group!!!)
She is completely loyal to those she loves.  She loves you no matter what... and she does it without making you feel smothered or like you owe her for anything.

One thing that Missy is above all things is kind.  If you Google the word "kind", you get the following definition:
  • compassionate: having a generous warm compassionate nature
  • generous: showing generosity or compassion
  • safe: not harsh, unpleasant, or likely to have destructive effects
This is a perfect description of Missy... (as long as you add "funny" and "loyal" to that definition).  She is one of a kind and I am SO thankful to call her my friend.  Everyone should have a friend as funny, sweet, kind and loving as Missy.  The world would be a much better place.

Praying today for:
The nation of North Korea
The state of Nevada

Remember, Nana loves you.
