These are some of the pictures of Joy's family. But, in reality, I feel no difference. We are blessed with a closeness that we both treasure. As Joy is my sister, Tommy has been my brother for many years now. I love the girl's and their husbands as if they were mine. And, to be sure, sweet JT is already snuggled into a special place in my are they all. We are so fortunate to live close and be available for each other. Thank-you, God.

I understand. My nieces are like my own too. The love runs deep. These pictures are beautiful. Did your son do them? Oh, and I love the last one of your dad!

Hi, I came over from The Grandparent experience.
Love all you Christmas pictures.
Read about your dream with your Mom in it. When I have a dream with my Mom or my best friends Mom it always amazes me. It is like a little unexpected visit. They are usually in 'mint condition'. It is just so amazing how our mind has it's own file of pictures it can bring up. Just like my is much more complex than I can imagine.

since I have just been sitting here being lazy... I had just finished reading most of your Son's stories, then checked my email and had received one from you (o: What a wild ride God has sent you on. I like that you added what the pastor said to you. What a gift. I always hope and pray that God would give me good and helpful words for someone going through a hard time. At least I have learned early in Life not to say.."I know how you feel". NOT. I just know that you and your husband are incredibly strong people. You all look so "Happy". Blessings to you and yours.

What a great looking family Joy has. And that's one handsome little baby. (And I don't say that about all babies, by the way - ha!).
