If you are a friend of mine on Facebook then you are aware that we have experienced a loss in our family. My father-in-law passed away on Monday.
It has been a whirl of activity over the last two days and today will be no different.
It takes an hour and 15 minutes to get there which means it takes an hour and 15 to get back. We have made this trip three times since this past Saturday, and we will do it again today.
This gift in all of this is that we had just spent the entire afternoon with my in-laws on Saturday. My husband got to spend some vey good one on one time with his father all afternoon. God is so god y’all!
Long car trips aside, being a bit tired, only pails in comparison to the unfathomable concept of loosing a husband. My in-laws would have been married for 58 years next month.
The years of first begins.
I ask your prayers for all my husbands family members in the loss of their father. For all the grandchildren, my two included as we grieve his loss.
The funeral is this afternoon. It will be a full military funeral, as my father-in law was retired Army. He served in two tours in Vietnam. There will be a 21 gun salute and all the pomp and circumstance. I have never been to a military funeral.
I have been told is is a very moving and impressive experience.
Well that’s all for now. Next week I’ll be back to some semblance of normalcy, I hope!
