Hi, everyone. I hope you're all doing well and having a great week.
We spent last week visiting with family and just relaxing! It was really nice.
Mom and Dad's blackberry and blueberry bushes are in full swing, so we had some good berries! We also enjoyed some of their fresh tomatoes and squash.
We visited with some of the neighbors too, and Mom wasn't very happy to find out that a mama bear and three cubs have been spotted in the neighborhood!
We spent one evening by the fireplace in the woods just talking and watching the fire. It's very soothing to my soul to hear the wind blowing through the leaves and listen to the fire crackle.
It may not be some folks' idea of a great break, but it sure is mine!♥
We went to our family reunion while we were on vacation too. This is the shelter we rented. It's so pretty there. We were blessed with a beautiful day!
I just love this picture!
I was so glad that Tanya was able to be there. If you remember, she is my cousin's wife that's been fighting cancer since December. She looks very different now,and when I first saw her, I just wanted to go somewhere and cry. I'd not seen her since our family reunion last year. She's lost her hair and was using a walker since she had part of both feet amputated because of blood clots. She has a very stubborn type of cancer that is not responding very well to treatment, and it's spreading. The latest news we have is that she is going to be treated with a special chemo that Duke hospital is going to make for her and send to her local hospital. She's been told that it's not a cure, but is supposed to give her more time. She'll be 37 in a couple of weeks. She has a wonderful husband and three great kids. It's definitely been a burden on the heart of our family. I know there are young people who pass away every day from cancer, but I'm still going to keep praying for her, and ask that you would too! I know they would appreciate it.
So, are you going to Chick-fil-A today? We are!
Enjoy the rest of your week, and thanks for stopping by. :)
