Part II of Sybil Victoria Joseph/Robertson
I suppose, she would have been impressively accomplished, if given the opportunity. For she was exceptionally clever, and remained favorably disposed towards education. She had an artistic leaning and a flair for histrionic actions, especially as she declaimed her favorite poetry, and speeches. She was industrious and brilliant, by any standard, and could be counted upon to give voice to something profound, and thought provoking, always. Her advise was golden, and remain relevant to this day. Her impartations are ingrained in me, and there exists, no day, without an opportunity, to reference and utilize them.
I thank you for being my supporter, caretaker, my teacher and the person most responsible for shaping the adult I am today. You believed that a child should be trained in the way she should go, so that when she is old, she will not depart from it. Though I presented a challenge to that position and perspective, I am a living testimony to its factual precepts, I thank you. You never forgot that Eli was a good man whom God punished for his children's sins, so you gave correction liberally. You believed that people should be judged by their mannerisms and conduct; I agree, and I am grateful to you. You protected, advocated for, and upheld me; I thank you, though in this instance, Thank You, seems inadequate.
I thank you because I know of no other words to articulate my experience or express the quality of my appreciation. Every word I think of, is lacking in both degree and relative standing. Your HARD WORK and act's of selflessness, did not go unnoticed, in actuality, it bore fruit. I am beyond blessed for having had you influence my thinking and behavior, my outlook, my efforts and most of my experiences; I am indebted to you, beyond repayment.
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us, so Here’s to you, Queen and strong woman of GOD, Sybil Victoria Joseph (and I did not forget) Robertson. Well done.
