That first year without a loved one is tough. Everyday is different with them not in your daily life, or at least where you could call them or go visit with them; share a laugh, a hug, all those things about when they were still here.

In the past couple of years our family has gone through several of our members having illness that required the rest of us helping or at least praying them through. My daughter had colitis twice year before last. Roy’s mom had hip replacement that went bad early last year. It took six months for her … Continue reading Memories, Blessings, and Treasures
I got some more of that news that just “tickles me pink,” as the saying goes. On one of those calls just to visit on the phone with my parents, I asked if there were any pears.
