How many of you like the “Memories” feature on FaceBook? I love it! Sometimes I don't remember what was going on, but today when I saw my FaceBook memory from a year ago, I remember exactly what was happening. My friend had just flown in from Texas the night before, and there had been a [...]
September 18th. It is a day that holds the highest of highs and lowest of lows for our family. it is a date that holds loss, and celebration. A date that has carried hope, and fear. Faith and uncertainty. A day that taught us how to endure through a storm. 7 years ago it was [...]
