Christine of Christine's Home and Travel Adventures tagged me for this meme.
I was to 1) Go into my photo files, 2) Pick the 6th file, 3) Post the story about the 6th picture in that file, and then 4) Tag six others to do the same thing.
Well, I found my sixth file, I guess - - - the way mine are stored there are files inside of files, but I'm calling THIS my sixth file. Once inside the file, I don't know if I should count six pictures horizontally or vertically - - - so I'm doing it BOTH ways.
This was my sixth horizontal photo. It was taken inside our hotel room when we traveled to Illinois for my Aunt Kitty's funeral. In the picture are my sister Pam in the foreground, our dad back right, and my daughter Keri with her daughter Piper back left. We were all nearly giddy to be OUT OF THE CAR, can you tell?
After having NEVER traveled together in our adult lives before, Pam, Dad, and I have made three trips this school year to bury family members, our mom, Dad's sister Kitty, and mom's sister Doris. Of course there is sadness at their passing away from us in this life, but much JOY in knowing where they have gone.
And now for the sixth vertical photo:
Life renews itself.
In the midst of losing loved ones this year, NEW loved ones were born. My friend Betsy had her first baby - - - a son named Jayden. Jayden was born very early and spent the first weeks (months) of his life in the neonatal intensive care unit.
In this picture, Jayden's daddy, Gerson, and a nurse are peeping through the window into Jayden's room.
Jayden is home with his family now and doing very well.
Saturday Gerson went on a LONG fishing day-trip with hubby and hubby's fishing buddy Mark. They caught forty-some fish, so Gerson is doing well these days too!!!
