A Good Morning


Last Sunday while in Cali we spent the beautiful morning observing Easy's mother's newly set headstone - in our pajamas.

I couldn't help but think of how I long to meet this woman whom I have grown to love over the past 6 years and how I'm proud that my daughters have her blood and are a part of her heritage and legacy.

In hearing stories, reading her journals, watching videos, and looking through photos I can't help but admire the mother and wife that she was with her incredible faith, her compassion, and her virtue.

I think she had it all pretty well figured out.

I feel the same way about Aaron's Dad. The stroke he had over 10 years ago changed him completely. I can't wait to meet the man that I only get glimpses of now. Aaron is such a product of how awesome his Dad is/was...if that makes sense.

I think she is a great example of record keeping for sure. It is wonderful that your family can read her words and watch videos to keep her close. Beautiful. I hope I figure it all out one day.
