A Happy and a Sad Day at the Same Time


Today is such a happy and sad day at the same time.  At 2:00 today John and I would have been married 48 years.


Also, 8 years ago today our dear sweet Landen passed away.  We were going to Hawaii for our 40th anniversary and decided to do Disneyland instead with him and stay close to home.  And it was good that we did so we could be there with him at the end of his short blessed life.

As I look back I know that the Lord looks after us and takes care of us, but oh dear Lord, I miss them both so much.  Especially on days like this when it should be a special day.

And it is a special day.  A day of remembering all of the joy, fun and love I had with both of these dear sweet souls.  I try so hard to remember the good times but sometimes the hurt and heartache creep in there.  

But, I am so blessed to have had them both with me for the time I had and I thank my Lord for the blessings He has bestowed on me.

Thank you dear friends for being here with me thru this difficult time and showing me your precious care and concern.

Love you all,
Judy

  30. Oh now, I can feel your pain. I just can't imagine. My little brother was killed in an accident at five years old. He was like my baby because I was 14. I was so grief stricken that I'd say to my mama that I knew how she felt because he was my baby too. She'd say, "Oh honey, you have no idea what you are talking about." Now that I have children and grandchildren, I know I never knew her pain. Prayers today and you remember. May you find comfort.
