She Can't Be Real

By Kay Heitsch • July 10, 2021

This week we drove over to spend some time with Aunt Carmeleta. We don't see her very often since she lives in Tennesee. However, this past week her husband Ken drove their motor home to Michigan to attend their Campmeeting.

As always, it was great to see Aunt Carmeleta. She met us at the motor home door smiling. She gave us each a big hug and scurried around to make us comfortable.

The first time Bill met Aunt Carmeleta, he said, "She can't be real!" Bill had never met anyone so kind, loving, and full of mercy as Aunt Carmeleta. But after knowing her for well over 50 years, he knows she is.

I've been blessed to know Aunt Carmeleta my whole life. She has helped me more than she will ever know. When I'd tell her how people were talking bad about me, she would say, "Just keep being yourself." Aunt Carmeleta accepted me for who I was. I'm sure she saw areas I needed improvement in, but she only showed love, patience, and mercy to me.

Next month Aunt Carmeleta will be 89 years young. I say young because she never seems to age to me. Yet, she is still full of love, kindness, and mercy. She accepts people where they are, and oh yes, she is for real!
