Six Years

      I think of all the changes that have taken place in my life since this video was made by Charlene.
     I did not think I could suffer as much sorrow as the unexpected death of my Dad.
      Since Dads death the family has gone through many changes.
     Broken hearts, broken marriages, broken bodies
      that were healed and repaired.
Life has been altered.
     Other family  members  that have passed on.
      My Dad's oldest surviving sister hardly remembers
      who we even are.
      I have added three more grandchildren to my branch of the family tree!
       Mom an Dad  gained their second great-great-granddaughter !
     So life continues.

"Not everything will be okay, but some things will"

Finding happiness in the small things in life keeps us all going forward.

The missing won't go away is it? Wish they find a cure for that. But as you say, we have to move on and find our happiness in the little things. We are blessed if we can!

Our true home is in the here and now. We must not let our life run in an ordinary way; do something that nobody else has done; something that will dazzle the world. Show that God's creative principle works within you. That will be the greatest tribute to those who are gone.
