"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

This photo was taken on Easter six years ago. I so love this photo-my brother and sister and I together. That was her last Easter before going home to Glory. How I miss her! The years have flown by, six grandbabies have been born, we moved to a new state and were able to retire. I know she is looking down and probably smiling or laughing at all of us. I have shared about her in the past so it is enough to say she had a typical Irish personality-ready for a good arguement any time and willing to defend her loved ones no matter what. She was like a mom to me until her final days when I was able to take over that position. She would love living in Colorado and being with family. Dee would be amazed at how well her little Reggie is doing and how spoiled he is. She would be amazed at her nieces, the size of their families and what incredible women they are-especially moms. She would tell me that she'd like a "cruiser bike" to take on bike rides because they are just her style. Most of all she would tell me how happy she is being with Jesus and I would smile,, through the tears, and say "yes, I'm so glad you went ahead and are with Him".
Forever and always, I will love you Dee.
Blessings on your weekend, kind friends. On Tuesday, I will share photos of the baby quilt on its way to California. Noreen
