This blog is largely about the positive things going on in our lives, because (1) I don't want it to be a total downer (for me or for you), and (2) difficult times change us, but I don't want the difficulty to define us. I prefer to focus on the many blessings we have been given.
Earlier this year we said goodbye to two people we loved: Kyle's Uncle Mart and his Grandma Thiel. At that time, it didn't feel right to mention their passing here. But, this past week or so we experienced - and I wrote about - two more deaths in the family. (One on my side and one on Kyle's.) And, this time, I needed to say something. I am not sure what was different.
I am not good at goodbyes, even goodbyes for now. But, I know that each of these people left a Legacy. They shaped us and made us who we are today. They taught us about Love and Life, and for that we will always be thankful.
