Memories

Well, it's been way too long for me to be writing in this blog. I have meant to write before now, but just didn't feel like typing the words out into a blog post.  

I had a great vacation this year.  Sara, momma and I went to Nebraska and spent some time with Mary and Mickey.  It was fun and relaxing.  My love of music I would travel better with Mary than mom and Sara.

This summer has been really good.  Maddie came to visit this summer, and work at Mamre Baptist Church.  Even though she didn't stay with me, she visited a lot. Tonight I said goodbye to her.  I'm gonna miss that girl. I love her so much.  Anyway, her favorite movie is The Notebook.  She likes it because of Ryan Gosling more than anything. I have never seen that movie before, but after my vacation, I decided that I would watch it with her.  She skips over the bad parts :) Anyway, that movie reminds me a bit of my parents.  They loved each other to the moon and back.  Even though my dad passed two years ago, the story of The Notebook reminds me a little of theirs.  Momma was a great caregiver to him. I loved how I took a lot of time off too to be with him. I have never regretted the time I spent with him.  I know my dad is in the presence of the Lord. He loved to tell people about Jesus.  

Tonight I was able to read a book that my niece put together for her children.  It is the testimonies of each of our family members.  It was a blessing to be able to read this book. I am thankful that I have a family who loves God.
