Joy and I had taken care of getting his gifts to the grandchildren taken care of…but it was weighing heavy on his heart that he did not know where or how to go about getting us something! He even said, “She always took care of that for me.”
So, we were able to say to him, “Pop, she took care of it this year also…look what we found!” And, when he saw that she had taken care of gifts for his girls one more time…he was overcome! What a wonderful surprise! What a confirmation of just how special she was. What a reminder of why we all loved her so much! She loved her family, she cared for her family…she cares for us still!
I am a Christian woman who has survived many years on the planet. God has blessed me with a wonderful family: husband, 3 sons, a dear DIL, and a precious grandson. I also have dear friends to keep me inspired. I am an artist of sorts and am finding my way through the great blessing of retirement. I recently retired after 20 years as a music teacher. Life is good!
