Time Away

I will be away for a few days. We have rented a house at the Oregon Coast where our family will spend the weekend together. We will have a private memorial time for our dear friend who recently lost her battle with cancer. It will be a sweet, quiet time - just us, as she wished. There will be moments of tears and times of laughter as we share what she meant to us and how she touched our lives. Tears for our loss and laughter as we remember the special ways she brought such joy to our hearts.

Here is where we will be safe and warm from the stormy weekend that is predicted. Today my dear little mother, my sweetheart and I will travel to the beach. Later today our son and daughter and their families will join us there. We are all excited and looking forward to our time together. We have talked of making this an annual event. Wouldn't that be great? I'm sure I'll have lots of pictures and much to tell when I return home on Sunday evening.

    that house is absolutely breath taking I'll bet the view from within is just beautiful in the morning and in the evening as the sun rises and sets...
