Sisters and Brothers

My Mom is amazing.  The tree is trimmed , 80 presents wrapped and waiting and still up for early morning parties, noon time parties and of course her sibling's annual get together.  Very much missing Edsel and Margie, the Floyd siblings are again blessed to have another Christmas together.  Aunt Dot and Mom have a beautiful bond of over 80 years of support and love for each other.  May God grant many more years of the circle being unbroken.

Memphis Visit

36 years ago, Chad was born in Memphis. He started his spiritual growth at Bellevue Baptist Church.  Now , Chad and family live in Memphis  and go to the same church.  We all attended the Singing Christmas and Louis and I were pampered with an overnight stay at their new home.  Lisa has made it beautiful. They both are such a team at making you feel welcome.  Of course, having my grandboys around top off the week end.

Dad's Memory

Looking at Dad's life today, I still and will always have such precious memories to cherish and enjoy.  So very often, Dad comes to my mind and the influences and mark he left on my life makes me feel very close to him. I love what Dad did with his dash.  He's life was such a blessing in how he lived it and shared it.  Three years ago, today, was the GRAND finale for Dad, here on earth, but only the beginning of heaven. He lived and died with such dignity and grace.  I am so proud to be his daughter.
