in my History Training this week, one of the things we have done is go to local cemeteries to see the history we could find there. Very interesting but not a popular topic I am sure. Anyway, I just wanted to share a couple of pictures with you...
In this picture, I am showing how bad the smoke is from the Arizona Fire. We are about a 4 to 5 hour drive from where the fire is. Look closely, you are supposed to be able to clearly see a large mountain range on the Horizon but it hasn't been visible for days- mountains that are only a 10 minute drive from where this photo was taken. My heart goes out to all those who are facing the inevitability of loss from this fire.
She is the youngest among her sisters- two of which have MS and the other is currently in the hospital for a serious kidney infection and kidney stones.
I know that life is all about facing our difficulties and that we have to take the good with the bad. The matriarch of the family is 70+ years old and is taking care of all of her daughters as well as her grandchildren and a husband who is not well. It is for her that my heart weeps. She has more than her share of heartache and she keeps going strong, never slowing down and never taking a very much needed moment for herself. She is in my prayers daily.
Hold on to your faith and hope.
