Goodbye and Hello

Today we say "goodbye" to Dad Earl and Mom Mary.... This is tough and I've been working hard to find the "beneficial" side of it....remembering that we could also think of it as "God Be With Ye".

Dad Earl made a big speech last night. He said he wanted to be sure to say that I've become a wonderful woman, wife and mother all these years. I was a bit blown away, touched and sad, as I think he's saying those things he wants to be sure to say in case....

Hello - to my folks and the girl's new campus apartmet.

Once again - bittersweet....and once again I'm remembering to CHERISH our memories of times well spent with Mom and Dad G.....Cherish and not Cling.

We're off to say goodbye, then come back and hook up the pray for us today. This will be hard for those of us who are old enough to understand long term goodbyes...and especially hard for Michael.

I'm not sure I'll be taking photos - here are a few shots. I've been capturing "sights of home".
