This was the first Thanksgiving after Momma went home. Also in this shot are my nephew-in-love, Brian, and my nephew, Jake.
You will note that there was a large gap in the photo dates. I have pictures from those years, but haven't gotten them scanned into my computer yet. Also, the pictures from years are sometimes very sad. It was our 'baby years', the years of trying to have children and of losing three babies in miscarriage. They were, without a doubt, the most difficult years of our marriage. However, we worked through all of the pain and clung to each other even more tightly.
Although I am extremely sad and lonely today, I am also so incredibly blessed and joyful to have loved and been loved so completely. It was and is the love of a lifetime.
