The Way We Were
I have not felt real good for the last few days and my sweet husband reminded me that last year around this time I had the same problem. I thought about what he said and started thinking why...........he being a Dr. Kassay.......always tease him about the Dr. Casey that use to be on TV...
anyway he was so understanding saying that through the years so much as changed for me. I have lost my Mother, Father Sister JoAnn and this fall I lost my brother-in-law. They were my family and now they are all together in heaven. Now I am the Grandmother, I am the oldest of the family and I now know why I have not been up to par. As a women I sit and think of how Christmas use to be and miss the ones that were my little family. Thank God I have my two daughters and my grandchildren to celebrate the reason for the season with but still linger for the way it use to be. As I reflect on my family in heaven I think to my self......wow what a beautiful celebration must be going on in heaven and now they are there together. I know that I will have a lovely Christmas day with what is now my family but will always remember.........how it use to be and the way we were. The picture above is the one and only picture I have of my little family and it is always framed and sits in a special place in my home.
Now that I have though about what use to be I want to share this darling picture of Winston who thinks he is one of my stuffed animals and posed with my Amelia Rose Bear. The bear was made for me by my friend Marylin, she put the date and name of my bear on its foot. I just love it and Winston , they make for a cute picture.
