on eagle's wings

Rough week...sad weekend....somber Monday.

Please forgive my absence...a heavy heart does not provide the most inspiring words.

My grandfather's twin passed away. He and my grandfather were actually born in my parent's home {yes...I grew up in the same home that my grandfather did.} There is something spectacular about having the same bedroom as my Pop did.

You lived a great life Uncle Harold and left a fantastic legacy...you taught me to believe in miracles and indulge in ice cream. I am sure you and Aunt Hannah are dancing the moments away as Pop plays the fiddle.

  8. What wonderful memories:) We live on property that my grandparents bought and my dad grew up on... it is a special kind of inheritance for our children, I think.

    Wishing you many sweet blessings this week.
