"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Loss

Loss. We all lose thing. Losing weight. Or misplacing our keys or phone (a common thing in our house) Or even worse we lose a friend or family member. This week was was the memorial service for our elders wife who lost her battle with a very aggressive form of cancer. The service was wonderful, with standing room only in the very large chapel. A true testimonial to the kind of woman she was. She was a wonderful example of what a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother should be. She was more then that too. She was a daughter, daughter in law, sister and friend to many. She will be greatly missed.

This week as got me thinking about the kind of person I am. It can be rather depressing to think about some times. I am human, and have faults, but with Gods help, hopefully I can be that kind of example she was to me, and I am sure to many others.
