3 years ago today my dad went to be with Jesus. I am thankful he is with the Him, but I miss my dad. So in honor of his memory, and because God is so good, I make new memories on this day. It is what my dad would have wanted, and the Lord meets me in it.
Making new memories came to me from another friend and her experiences. It helped to have something to look forward to that 1st year. So for the 1st year I took the day off from work, and went out with a friend. We toured the town of Waxhaw (so cute!) and had lunch. That night Jimbo gave me a pot of Mums, and other presents. 🙂 The following year we bought a better car to drive Ahren around in, and we traveled up to NY. At 3 months old this was Ahren’s 1st road trip, and he had a lot of relatives to meet.
Today we went to Matthews, NC where Aunt Jane and some cousins live so Ahren could see his 1st parade; then we went back to Aunt Jane’s to have a nice afternoon visit. Ahren loves to play at Aunt Janes! After that we went to a friends house to celebrate her son’s 1st birthday, and Ahren played hard some more. It was a fun, full day.
In fact the past week has been a good week. The Lord is doing a new thing in our lives. The winds of change are blowing!!! Let’s see what will happen!
I keep remembering a phrase from The Chronicles of Narnia: “Aslan is on the move!”
