Today is a day that I thank God for almost everyday. It is the day an angel was born. Her name is Mitchilene Williamson. She stands about five and a half feet tall and graces the world everyday with a prayer and a smile. Some may know her as a friend, sister, aunt or spiritual advisor. If you know her because of me, you may know her as Nanny, the love of my life.
No matter if you have met her once or many times, you won’t find many like her. She finds a reason to smile in the rain. She loves. She loves unconditionally and without regard. She prays like no other. She smiles. She smiles and the entire room lights up. She makes you feel calm. She has the wisdom of a thousand men. She knows just what to say and when to say it. She never judges, she just opens her arms because she knows God has yet to let her down.
Have you ever met a good person? Just someone who you know you can trust? Someone who does the right thing just because? That’s Mitchilene Williamson. She is more than just a family woman, she is a masterpiece.
Mitchilene Williamson, aka my Nanny, is one of a kind. Her sense of humor, amazing personality, contagious charisma and beautiful smile make it hard for one not to love her. It is beyond my pleasure to celebrate someone so worthy of praise. While her selflessness never requires praise, I think it is important that we never take for granted the chance to celebrate those who influence our lives the most.
I call her the love of my life because that is exactly what she is. She is always in my corner and picks me up when I feel down. I could never pay her back for all of the sacrifices she has made for me, but of course I will always strive to.
So, happy birthday to the love of my life, Mitchilene Williamson! Smell your flowers, relish in your greatness, admire yourself and dance in your glory. You are more than any of us could ever ask for. Never forget you are appreciated and loved.
Thank you for all you do and we appreciate you!
Everyone, say happy birthday to my nanny!
