Well I can't sleep so here I am...thought I would share a few pictures of Ellie meeting my parents. All her great-grandparents have passed except for mine so it was really nice she got to go to Washington and meet them, as well as other relatives. My son wishes he could still live there, as do I, but for now we are here in Minnesota. He would like for Ellie to know more of her cousins and have the same kind of life he had but as we all know life brings many changes. Out here he has one sister with one child and his wifes family is several hours away . He grew up with lots of family, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents and would like the same for his children(ok child for now) We hope they have more but what ever God has planned for them is ok with me. I know for some of us we miss what we had as children but life goes on and we can make new memories for our children and grandchildren. I have 5 brothers and sisters but my son has only two sisters so there are not going to be as many little ones to share his life with. Sometimes it is just hard growing up and accepting change. That is where trusting in GOD really helps me, knowing he has a plan and I don't have to worry about it.
