Over this last weekend we were so blessed to have my mom come and stay with us for 5 days. She has been living in Virginia for the last 5 years and came home for the holidays to spend some time with her mommy and all of us. My handsomeness snapped this pic just before I drove her back to the airport. My girls adore their "Lala". She always makes them laugh and has wonderful ways of imparting truths to them without them seeing it as another lecture from mom ;0)
Since she left on Monday afternoon the house has been too quiet, but my heart is filled with beautiful memories of countless cups of tea and coffee shared together; long marathon scrabble matches (my sis is the only other person who plays the game with me); heart felt conversations about life; watching romantic comedies and laughing until the tears rolled down our cheeks and our tummies ached with laughter ... oh how I miss her already!
This blog is a place for me to highlight what is closest to my heart and family has to be something that matters most to me. While I live far away from all of my side of the family, I have seen how God repeatedly gives us amazing times to be with one another. Oh how He treasures family! I never want to take the people in my life for granted. Our times together are rich and precious. That is a gift that I treasure deeply.
All my love xxx
