Today we spent time filling my Aunt in on our lives. I snuggled in with her in bed and showed her my pictures from my vacation. She may not be able to talk, but she can definitely get her point across.....like when she scolded me for showing too much cleavage in a picture! :)
I loved that my children jumped right onto her bed to share the things they brought with her!! We had such a wonderful time with her and were able to gather around her and have a family prayer time! But it broke my heart to leave......I love her so much and seeing her cry as we left was nearly too much for me!
I am so thankful that I know my Lord holds her in the palm of His wonderful hands!!!
We drove to Dallas today to see my Aunt. Alyssa came from Abilene to meet us there. What a blessing to see her but heart breaking as she cried when we walked in and cried when we left.....that was hard. She looks great, but is very frustrated by not being able to communicate. I can only imagine how it must feel to know what you want to say, but not be able to get it out. Even with that, we had such a sweet time with her!
I am a woman in mid-life who loves the Lord and her family!! I am the mom of 3 absolutely amazing kids (23, 21, 19) who make my life happy, crazy, busy.....perfect! I am also a pastor's wife. I try to live each day looking for where God is working so that I can join him there.
I am attempting to take one photograph each day of this next year. My hope is to be able to slow down and see the small things, become a better photographer and to be reminded of the many blessings God sends my way!
