Family is a gift from God

There is no doubt in my is a gift from God.

I like to describe my family as a patchwork quilt...we have lots of steps and halves...and yet God has chosen to knit all of our patches together into a unique collage that I call my family.

Coming home to see Granny has been a special blessing to me. I've gotten to spend lots of lots of quality time with not only her, but with my Dad and stepmom Jackie as well. We've laughed and cried and gone deeper than ever before.

Stepbrother Brad, Stepmom Jackie and Dad Lee

And sweet, sweet Granny. Today, my last day, she was smiling and chuckling...her eyes were bright and she looked more positive than I've seen her the whole time I've been home. I will always carry the memory of this last 2 weeks we had together, mostly just her and me, hanging out at the rehab center, just loving each other. What an amazing gift from my Father.

Whenever she does go, I believe He'll be meeting her with open arms and saying, "Welcome home, my child."

Me, Granny, Half brother Richard, Sister LeeAnn

What an amazing God we serve.
