What a view. It's hard to believe how quickly the week went by. We were blessed with a wonderful week. It is great to just relax and enjoy all the beauty that God created. Blue skies with white fluffy clouds and a lake that just glissened. When you witness this is there any question who created this world of ours? This was our annual vacation with my mom and my sister's family. It was a bitter sweet vacation. My sister's husband Bob, passed away last summer and we really missed not having him with us. It was a difficult week for my sister and her children. So many memories of the summer's past. When we looked at the lake we couldn't help but remember the many years that Bob wouild be out in the water playing with the kids. Yes, it was a week of new memories and looking back on past memories and remembering those we love and knowing that they will be once again be with us sharing eternity. I was in luck! Not so lucky for my husband, Traverse City was having their annual garden walk while we were on vacation. This was right up my alley. I love gardens and have lots of new ideas. My husband was a good sport and took my mom and myself to see all the wonderful sights. I really think he enjoyed talking with all the garden club women in their flowery hats!
