Take Me Back Tuesday

It's time again for Take Me Back Tuesday. This weekly meme is hosted by Kari at A Giveaway Addicted Mommy. Drop by and pay Kari and visit and check out Mr. Linky for other TMBT posts.

The McDonald Family
Christmas, 1994

This picture was taken at Daddy and Momma's house on Christmas evening, 1994. Someone had a tripod and a camera with a timer and we posed as a family. This picture is priceless to now. We are: (back row L-R)~Debra, Dwade, Daddy, Adam, Katie, Momma, Charlotte, Me, Ricky and Terry; the cute fellas on the front row are (L-R)~ Jared, Caleb and Jacob.

As soon as we had done our dinner and opened our gifts, we loaded into our cars and headed to the hospital to visit with Maw McDonald. It was Momma's turn to relieve my Aunt Marie and sit with Maw. We had a wonderful visit with Maw and headed back home. On the way, Caleb said to me "Aunt Di, Maw is gonna live with the angels". I told him that yes, someday Maw would live with the angels. He said "No, now, I saw the angels. They're gonna take Maw to heaven with them".

On the 18th of January, 1995, the angels came for Maw and she went to heaven to live with the angels. I have never forgotten what that innocent little boy saw that night that all of the 'grown ups' couldn't see. The Bible does say a little child shall lead them........

Thanks for stopping by today. I so much enjoy sharing my pictures with all of you. My life is so much about the past at this point. It will move forward when the time is right and I'll be able to live for the day and even anticipate the future, but not yet.

Don't forget to drop in on Kari and check out Mr. Linky! Have a great Tuesday!

Di, that is such a lovely picture of the whole family.
I really believe little one's can see Angels because they are so young and innocent as they get older they see less and less because they world becomes more and more in their sight.

Such a sweet picture of your family. I love the look on Jared's face. It reminds me of my daughter when she has to be in group photos. : )

What a wonderful picture and story to go with it! Caleb's comment gave goosebumps! Yes, the children can see what us grownups can't!
