Yall know I talk to everybody right?
Well...today we got to the game pretty early and the lovely lady who helped us get to our seats was one of the nicest people I've met in a while. She and I got to talking about random stuff and every time I'd passed her by on my way to the restroom, concession stand, etc...she was so pleasant and gracious.
She had that sense of calming peace about her that makes you know someone is good down deep.
We kept talking.
On one particular lull in activity she stood behind us and told us about how often she travels and where all she's been in the world. The shorter list was to ask where she had NOT been. And then she said something really nonchalantly.
Ms. Shirley: I'm a scuba diver.
Ms. Shirley: Yes. I'm in the Hall of Fame for scuba diving.
Ms. Shirley: Look me up on the internet.
And I whipped out my iPad and did just that and LO AND BEHOLD...check out Ms. Shirley Lee!
HOW FLIPPING FA-BU-LOUS IS THAT?????????
She reminded me of Becca. Just happy with an easy smile and laugh and a confidence that is born of DOING-T IT!
Ms. Shirley is 76 years old yall. She made my EN-TIRE heart smile.
Imma steal her. We NEED to know more about her story. Don't yall agree?
