My New Old Friend

I’m linking up with the Soli Deo Gloria sisters, celebrating one year of virtual togetherness.

Greetings, everyone!

Back in the summer I received an assignment from the magazine, to interview a particular Waxahachie resident and write up her story. The only specifics that the editor included with her contact information were:

A basic profile piece on a 90-year-old with stories to tell. Her greatest blessings are the people she’s met along the way and the many miracles in her own life.

Well, the assignment may have been “basic” or ordinary, but Mrs. Davison is not. We spent more than two hours together and I enjoyed every minute. She told me one fond memory after another, each more intriguing or astonishing than the last.

Between her family’s connections during her childhood and, later, her husband’s distinguished military and diplomatic career, she got to meet quite a few well-known people. Besides her optimistic faith, one thing I like best about Mrs. Davison is her willingness to learn from everyone she meets.

You can read her story in the November issue of Waxahachie NOW by clicking here. (The feature begins on .pdf page 38.)

I hope you enjoy getting acquainted with Mrs. Davison as much as I have.

Thanks for reading,
Jan

  2. This was delightful! I just love meeting people like this, even if only through their stories. And, if ever I get to see a president, I’m going to blow him a kiss. Cause you just never know! Thanks so much for sharing this here.
