I’ve been away for a couple of weeks….and I’m back to my Kentucky home.
This post is a snapshot of my trip back to my ‘Utah Home’ (I also have an ‘Arizona Home’) and some notes about family…and blessings.
My Brothers, Sister and Brother-In-Law, some of their family and my Parents live at my old stomping grounds in Utah.
My Sister had a hysterectomy and I was there to help during her recovery.
I call my Sister ‘Debaroo’ because she has a lot to carry around in her pouch! She has two boys that have Muscular Dystrophy and she has been raising three Grandchildren…a bit much to handle after surgery. I am so thankful I was there to lighten the load so that Debaroo could focus on healing and recovery. It was a blessing to me… spending time with family. Surgery and recovery went well.
About those Nephews of mine….
They are amazing! They have both outlived their life expectancy…something I attribute to the love and care of their Parents, Family and to their attitude, faith and loving spirit. They are such a blessing to our Family!
Dustin had been on oxygen for the past month…following an episode of pneumonia. It was quite probable that he would be on oxygen for the remainder of his life. Once again…he has amazed us and he is no longer on oxygen! That was a wonderful day!
Dad and Mom …
Both of my Parents have had life threatening illnesses and conditions over the past couple of years. It was a blessing to see them both being active and doing well.
Some nice surprises…
I had a birthday while I was away. Dad and Mom brought cake up to my Sister’s home and Dad made his famous, scrumptious homemade ice cream for me. YUM!
I don’t always get to see both of my Brothers while I am in Utah so it was great to be able to see them both on this trip. I also got to see a Nephew that I haven’t seen in several years…Damian. He is a Border Patrol Agent in Arizona and we don’t see him very often. We were all excited to see him walk up the sidewalk…a very nice surprise!
It was wonderful to spend time with my ‘Utah’ Family.
Here are some shared and special moments…
Tuesday, June 5th…
My last day in Utah…sad goodbye’s. At the same time…we thought of the song ‘Silver Wings’…started to sing it…and started to cry. We are such softies…geeze! Goodbyes are always difficult…when you love someone so much! I boarded the plane…looked out at the wing…well, I guess you know the rest of the story!
Silver Wings….shining in the sunlight….roaring engines….are taking me away, leaving me lonely….
Only until next time…and then those Silver Wings…will bring me back!
Happy Trails….’til we meet again!
