Yesterday, I received one of the best presents of my life. Scott found a box of three hundred slides in our folks' stuff and took them to Walgreens where they were converted to a CD. They arrived in my mailbox yesterday and as I looked through them, it was like traveling in a time machine. Most I have never seen before. I would guess the vast majority came from Grandpa Hawley as my parents were not great picture takers. A good number of you have known my family for years, if not generations. Over the coming weeks, I will print some so you can see my family in its earlier stages. (I think my favorite picture is one of me and my breathtakingly beautiful date, Deb Schark, at the York High School Athletic Banquet when I was a senior.) Many of you are wanting an update on Mom. Scott and Dave report she seems very content as she receives phenomenal care. We are blessed that Dave and Scott's families can spend time with her constantly. So, in honor of the world's best mother, here are a few shots of her on the shores of Lake Michigan by herself and with two rascals. I love you, Mom.
Applicable quote of the day:
"We try to grab pieces of our lives as they speed past us. Photographs freeze those pieces and help us remember how we were. We don't know these lost people but if you look around, you'll find someone just like them."
