Don't bittersweet times seem to happen frequently? The past few weeks have been rather emotional for my family.
On October 25, my new sweet little second cousin, Macy, arrived in Boulder, weighing 7 lbs. 8 oz. She is a doll! Congrats Cory and Mary!
After a long battle with aphasia and alzheimers, my father-in-law, Wesley Rozema, passed away on October 30. The week before he had celebrated his 60th wedding anniversary and 80th birthday. A man of great wisdom and love for his family, he will be sorely missed. His memorial service will be in Arizona the weekend after Thanksgiving. All the family will be there; we haven't all been together since the 50th wedding anniversary celebration. Kids, grandkids, and even great-grandkids now will celebrate and remember his life.
And finally a week later, my son, Steven, was married to a beautiful bride, my new daughter-in-law, Rachel, on November 6, in North Carolina. It was a beautiful fall day, and the wedding was everything they had hoped for. They just returned from their Jamaican honeymoon yesterday. Here is a little peek of their beautiful pictures:
So some bittersweet days to be sure. But one thing I know, it's all about Love and love of family.
Give yours a hug today and say
"ME LOVE YOU."
My card is made with images by Hambo Stamps, and the paper is by My Mind's Eye. I thought it would make a super cute Valentine! Or just a card to tell your loved one what they probably don't hear enough.
Enjoy your day!
