Post Surgery Get Together

So I was able to see some of my family that I haven't been able to in a long while after I had surgery. They thought that I might die or something so they decided since I didn't that they would come and see me. (said with sarcasm but in reality the Lord blessed me greatly. And with that I was aloud to stay here with my family) My sister Carla and her son Everett and Chloe(not pictured at top) are staying with my mom while her husband is working. My Grandpa came and was able to give me a wonderful blessing.
My cousin Brian, whom I just adore. We became much closer after my Grandmother died. I was so glad that he came and we were able to visit. I long for him to be happy and realize that he is just one awesome guy and the Lord knows that about him. We are missing a picture of my Aunt who was actually there too.
My niece Isabel celebrated her birthday while we were together and she asked me if I would come with her to American Girl store. She picked out this cute doll that looked so much like her. I felt so honored that she asked me to come. The only adult girl we were missing was my sister Marie. We were missing obviously my family but during this time I was staying with my mom still recovering from the surgery. I am so grateful for all of my family. Some of us are scattered all over and that is hard but I am still so grateful for family and the part that they play in my life.

What cute pics! You're so lucky to have family that really steps up to help you during times of need.

Thank you also for your kind words on FB and my blog. It's disheartening sometimes to be sidelined from surgery! I'm sure you know that, as yours seems to have been very intensive surgery. Thank you so much Dana!

You do have a great family...especially your sister in TN(he,he)!

Wendy I think you are just a little prejudice ;0)

Fun times and it was a celebration also for the Lord saying you could stay with us a little longer. Isabel loves her doll. And it does look a lot like her.
