He just got his eyes fixed and was so excited he could see again...and then his hearing went.
Who will I call and yell into the phone to every week?
I know his health was bad and was getting worse. He is in a better place. No more pain. No more meds...the addiction is over for him.
What I am realizing this morning is that "forgiveness" is relative. It's easier to finally let everything go when they aren't around. The good memories seem to crowd out the bad...I am grateful for that.
I am going to miss him. After all we have been through, he is still my Dad and I love him.
That won't change.
We love you Dad, Grandpa Gary, Bruce, Wally.

I am feeling very blessed this year with all the visits of people I love. So grateful.

Yesterday we went to see the movie "Dr. Strange" and I turned sideways to say something to her and had to readjust my head because she was visibly taller.
What is happening? She turned 12 this year. She is so grown up in so many ways. But in many she is still a little girl. At least to me she is.
She likes to spend time with her friend Jaegar from school. Mr. Finn took them to a baseball game to watch the Royals and they got amazing seats up close. She loved that she was the talk of school the next day.
She is making friends easier...
And trying new things. The pained look is because there was a spider in the kayak with her and she was freaking out.

Thank you, my son, for giving me that "melt your heart feeling" this morning.
I would love to say the cat is sweet, but we all know differently. She tricked us into coming home with us from the shelter. Sweet?
Not so much.
But the boy loves her...

She came to visit us right before Mr. Finn and my birthday on September 5th. She stayed for three weeks and was so much fun to run to Bee Creek every morning after dropping off the kids at school for a "Fluffy". (that's what they named their Mormon hot cocoa)
Many decision were made, many things were fixed and furniture was bought during her visit. And not to mention she bought me a shirt and sweater that are my favorite and I hardly wear anything else these days. Thank you again.
I love you.
