Beautiful Weekend!

D and I had a wonderful weekend. We really needed some time to sit back and relax and enjoy some down time. This weekend my beautiful auntie L planned a family reunion of her siblings and their families. Her siblings include my father and their brother J from Colorado. I love family reunions. As you know D and I host his family reunion at our house every year. It is so wonderful to keep in touch with family. My uncle J and his family have lived in Colorado since I was a little girl. Now his kids are grown and have grand kids of their own. The memories flood back while spending time with them this weekend. I had several opportunities to just sit back and look at them all. See how much my dad looks just like his dad. My uncle J sure does resemble my grandma; his mother. My beautiful niece Emmie; well there are no words. She is just so beautiful. She looks just like my sister. I so enjoyed visiting with her. She is getting so big. Off to middle school for her this fall. Such a big moment in one's life.
This would be a good place to insert photo's if one was smart enough to do so. But at the moment I am not sure where my camera is.
But back to family. This seems to be the season for family reunions. I hope that if you are blessed enough to have one then go. Don't worry about a thing. There are crazy ones at these things but look past that. Look past the ones that think they know it all. The ones that don't have a clue as to the person that you really are and have a wonderful time. Enjoy all the beautiful babies. Count all your blessings because when you have a big family there are many blessings to be counted. Each family unit has a blessing to be told. And if you are really open to Gods grace then don't judge the choices of others. They have a story too.

Many Blessings,

Just sitting with it for a while.....

D and I just got back from the lake. This is where we go when life is too hard for us to deal with. We can sleep all day if we want. We eat some of his mom's comfort food. Watch the waves splash on shore. Snuggle on the porch. And just sit with what has been dealt to us. What is our future? Who knows but does anybody really? This week we have an appointment with the neurosurgeon to see if surgery is in D's near future. No matter what happens this is what is to be. We will sit with it a while and accept all that is to come....because as my son said recently. What is to happen is already planned. Just go with it. There has been so many changes in the last few year. Some good some not so good. I was hoping for some sort of normal for a while.

What is normal anyway?????

Many Blessings,

I have been gone so long.....

I opened my blog today, it has been so long since I have been here. I have missed posting. Life is taking me on a journey; I am not sure where it will lead. Or if I even want to go......praying is all I know how to do.
