The gift of love has, is and always will be yours.
Happy Birthday, Kate
We are so disappointed that our trip to Italy was canceled at the 11th hour (the cab was on the way to take us to the airport) but we know others have much worse hardships due to the volcanic eruption in Iceland and we thank God for the protection against possibly not being able to get back home if we had made it to our destination.Maybe it just wasn't meant to be for us to go to Italy.
Once again Mary’s mother, Marlene, was part of our family gathering, though in a wheel chair and bruised from a recent fall, she still had a sparkle in her eye and a smile on her face when she looked at a child. Their affection for her was evident as they hugged her hello and goodbye. Join me in putting her and Mary, as her daughter, on your prayer list.
We headed back to the house for the annual egg hunt at the Heath. The big boys hid the eggs for the younger ones and hunted for the golden egg that Mimi hid in a much more difficult place. We hung out together a little longer, while the children went to the trampoline, and then everybody left to the gyrations of the “happy dance”. In the sudden quiet and in the warmth of the sun before going into the house, Grandad and I embraced and told each other how blessed we were. It had been another good family day and we were so grateful. Thank you to all who loved us today....
Happy Birthday My Darling.
