What a weekend ....

Well, this four day weekend was not only Memorial weekend but our wedding anniversary on Friday the 23rd... 10 years and we have made it through with bumps and some bruises, but every one of them have made us stronger.

But as it was our wedding anniversary, it was also a time of family. As Grandpa Don (hubby's side, Great Grandpa to the kids), passed away at 11:30a. He will be so missed! He wanted to go a few years ago when his wife died 1/23/04, and I know she was waiting for him on Friday. We will miss you Grandpa!!

Dream Eternal
Dream Eternal
Dedicated to Donald “Grandpa” Boys

As you close your eyes to nap,
Family you know surrounds you.
Angels come to hold your hands,
Your Love has gone ahead before you,
And come back leading you the way.

You tell us,
Do not fear
Do not cry,
Do not be sad even as I dream eternal,
I am with you while you live your day,
And when you dream by night.
I will always live on in your memories,
Be with you in those moments of strife,
And Love you always!

I am with you,
Even while God’s hands are surrounding me now.
Where there is no pain or suffering,
Just peacefulness and love.
I will always be with you.
Even when you close your eyes to nap.

Relax with Nature

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
