One year ago..

One year ago...

we were in Washington state, staying at my dad's home and visiting with family. I can't believe a whole year has gone by, and within that year..we lost dad, and grampa. So many changes..
I was looking over some pictures of the trip today..I am SO thankful I snapped away and took as many as I could. I even took video of dad rotatilling the garden..and pulling Eliahna and Caleb in the wagon.

I can't go back..but I can look at these pictures and soak up the memories and keep them in my heart forever.

We left dad's house on May 6th. I took a picture of him walking back to the house as we were driving away...the last time I saw him.

May 6th is a hard day anyway..the day my Gramma died, 17 years ago.

I'm so thankful for the blessings in in my life. My precious children..my wonderful husband..and all the family we have who love us unconditionally. I'm thankful for the Lord..who 'healeth up my broken heart..and bindeth up my wounds'..as in Psalms..
