January 2018 UPDATE
Here we are again at the beginning of another year with hopes of keeping this space active. In 2009 it was a place to gather my thoughts, then a place to share updates on my Dad who left this earth in 2011. One month after I made the previous update to this page, my husband was critically injured in Africa and we used this space to document and share that journey. And then silence. The past four years have been full, hard, and good. It’s been difficult to find the words, time, and courage to share here. But we begin once again.
UPDATED January 2014
Much has changed since I created this “family” page. From July 2009 – December 2011, we used this blog to keep friends and family up to date on my Dad. After two and a half years of saying good-bye, Jesus finally called Dad Home. We miss him terribly, but our hope and comfort is in knowing we will be reunited again one day. God has blessed us and added four beautiful grandchildren to our family since 2010. They bring such joy and laughter into our lives. Mom is currently writing her memoirs and we are thankful to live within blocks of each other.

Dad has been living with Parkinsonism, but began rapidly declining to the point where Mom could no longer care for him at home. So on July 4th, 2009, our family had to make one of the hardest decisions we have ever made. He was admitted to the hospital and then transferred to a skilled nursing facility where he is currently being cared for.
We have used this blog as a way to share our journey with the many friends and family that love them and are praying for them. Each post that relates to Mom and Dad is listed under Categories as my parents
