Sean is back from deployment.
Reunited, when so many are not.
All is as it should be.
Our cherished relatives have arrived.
Our wonderful nephew is here...
...with his beautiful family, and his parents, Don and Viv. (sorry, not pictured)
We also have the joy and honor of sharing the next few days with our dear daughter-in-love, Rachel, and her sweet Mama Layne.
Later today, a bunch of beloved friends will be arriving to share dinner with us.
We are all bound together by love and loyalty, faith and hope.
Crystal with her nephew, George, who is in Heaven with Joey. Our friend on the road of grief and joy.
For this comfort and these blessings, I give thanks.
God has been good to us. We are eating an enormous meal today, and know that's a privilege. We have enough to share with others, and know that's a responsibility. God has been compassionate toward us, and met every need.
