The first week of September, we said goodbye to Mumsey.  But, only for a little while.  She fought a tough battle and we are so thankful that she is not having to fight anymore.  We have shed many tears over not having her here with us, with our girls, and with all those who loved her.  We may not have all the answers and know all the "whys", but God has given us His promises.  Promises that He proves to us each day are real and true. (even though He doesn't have to)  He has provided comfort when no one else could.  He has shown a purpose and a plan in the smallest details.  He has given strength when we were at our weakest.  He has displayed himself so clearly.  He will never leave us or forsake us.  He knows the entire picture and we can rest in Him.  Mumsey is now at His feet and we smile as we think of the day when we will join her there. 

This is the first time I have really gone back through pictures since the funeral.  This is a time when I don't regret the fact that I take so many photos.  And there are many more that will end up in our family books. There are so many things we will remember about Mumsey and we cherish these pictures as they will help our girls remember and see how much she loves them!

We cannot express how thankful we are for our friends and family.  You have been such an encouragement and support for us.  I am amazed at the kindness and genuine love shown to us by
all my co-workers, our dear friends, and extended family.  Thank you for your prayers, the many meals you prepared, the babysitting you rearranged your schedules for, and just being available to help.  You will never know what a simple card and phone call has meant to us.
We are truly thankful!
