My out-of-state family left today. It seems they just arrived and now they are gone. Our days together went too fast. Way too fast. What we so eagerly anticipated is now a memory. A precious memory. We shared our lives, we reminisced, we laughed and, at times, we shed a few tears together. And we embarked on adventures we will never forget. We shared the beauty in our corner of the world and we made the most of every sweet moment we were together. Oh how we wish we could live close to each other.
Thank you for your prayers for my dear little mother. She was very ill while our family was here. They were a blessing to her but she missed activities she had anticipated sharing with them. She experienced serious side effects from the anti-viral medication prescribed for the Shingles. It was discontinued and we are waiting further testing to determine if it caused any permanent harm.
Soon I will share a bit of the fun we had, and some of the treasures we found while our family was with us. We have a new appreciation for our part of the world. We have seen it through their eyes. And it will never look the same again!
