A Special Blessing

Today was our youngest dds day to get the mail. (yes, we have assigned days!) When we went out to get the mail, we were surprised by a wonderful blessing.

We received letters from some very special friends. Actually, they are more than just friends, they are family.

Grandpa Richard and Grandma Ida have been a very important part of our lives for many years. Ida is my mentor. She is, well, she is a very dear woman whom I love very much.

Richard is a quiet source of strength and wisdom. And we love his quiet humor!

They moved away from us several years ago and we have been in mourning ever since. We have been able to visit only once and it wasn't nearly a long enough time to stay.

Hopefully we will be able to go out this spring, if they are willing to have us??

Can you see our youngest? She was quite comfortable snuggled up with Grandma Ida.

Grandpa Richard held them captive with ice cream and train talk! ;-)

We love you guys and cannot wait to be able to hug you again. Blessings to you.
