Joanie

Many of my friends have heard me talk about my good friend Joanie. Joanie is quirky, independent, strong-willed, & has taught me lessons on patience comparable to that of motherhood. I recently read a quote that said, “It is usually through another person that (God) meets our needs.” I think sometimes he does that in unexpected ways. Joanie was definitely sent into my life to challenge & refine me. She has taught me about compassion & understanding & has played an important role in teaching my kids to serve. I hope everyone is lucky enough to have a “Joanie” in their life at some point. Seeing that smile on her face today kinda made it all worth it. #lighttheworld

Working to Improve Our Shot

Milo asked my parents for a BB gun for his birthday this year. In the past, my mom has always handled the kids’ presents, but this purchase had Dad written all over it. I remember him shopping for it over vacation & Mom said he ran to the store to get BB’s the night before his passing. It seems fitting that one of his last errands in his time on Earth was spent doing something for one of his grandchildren. When Milo opened the gift, his first question was who would teach him to use it now that Grandpa was gone. It was all so fresh, that question was only met by silence. But Ryan stepped in & took Milo aside carefully teaching him the proper safety precautions & how to aim & shoot the gun.
 
Dad did so much for us, it’s hard to imagine life not being able to run to him for help all the time. But just like it was time for us to step up & teach Milo to shoot the gun ourselves, it seems like it’s finally time to step it up in all areas of our lives. I’m grateful for the opportunity that death gives us to re-evaluate our lives & identify areas for improvement. 

Dad would’ve been so proud to see Milo’s first bullseye, but not nearly as proud as he would be to see his children striving to live up to their full potential. I know that we’ll eventually hit that ultimate bullseye & get to be with my dad again. In the meantime, we’ll just keep working to improve our shot. #FamiliesAreForever
