Myrtle Memories....

I cannot believe that it has been almost a month since my last post. Time really flies. As I write this, I am sitting on the couch in Mom and Dad's Myrtle Beach condo looking at the precious faces around me. Presley is to my right curled up in her handmade princess blanket, snoozing away. Joseph is to the right of her reading a brand new "Captain Underpants" book. (Unless you have a boy between the ages of 7 and 12, you probably have no clue what that is).

To the right of Joseph is my Mom. It is quiet and peaceful here tonight. We are watching "Biggest Loser" and just enjoying our time. If I listen really intently, I can hear the waves crashing against the shoreline. My goodness, God is good.

This trip has been a trip down memory lane. As a little girl, my family of four always came here for our vacations. Mom and Dad would bring us to this very same condo when we were growing up. My children are experiencing the magic of Myrtle Beach, just as we did.

The true cherry topping for this trip, was that my sister and her 2 youngest children were able to come down for a few days with us as well. So, we have Mom and Dad, Ang, Royce and Anna-Joy, and Joseph, Presley and myself. Ahhh...could it get much better?? Well, yes, only if Lem were here.

My blessings are immeasurable it seems. The real assets in life are the people around you, the loved ones that share unforgettable memories, the ones who love you at your worst. These are my people, my beloved ones.

I am honored beyond words to be a part of this family.

embracing memory lane,
