Looking back on this decade and so much has changed. My son became a dad in 2010 when Kamryn was born.
Lindsay got married in 2014,
Emma went away to Bible College in 2014,
and Tim started his own business.
Nate and Kayleigh got married in 2015,
Emma and Vinnie got married in 2015, too!
2016 brought two new grandbaby girls, Isla and Klaire.
2018 brought us a grandson, Clark.
Also in 2018 Rachel began dating Wes and also attended Word of Life Bible Institute in Scroon Lake, NY. 2019 brought her graduation, and their engagement.
Our granddaughter Kaidence was born in June.
2020 will bring Rachel and Wes' wedding and a new grandbaby. (Emma and Vinnie)
Through all these highlights, there have been sad things as well. Tim's mom was diagnosed with short term memory loss dementia, and has several small strokes. She has full time care in her home, from a caregiver, and from family. We both lost some aunts and uncles, and the week before Christmas brought the loss of my great uncle, and my dad's brother. There have been hurt feelings, and struggles between us all, and yet God's grace has kept us moving forward in forgiveness and love.
I'm grateful for it all, and beyond thankful for Christ's redeeming love. I'm praying that the next decade God will be glorified in our lives.
