The day we heard heart aching news about Auntie Patty Lou, the sky was painted with a brilliant picture. One that reminded me that He is mighty and reigns over the Heavens and Earth, but He also cares about our every whispered prayer and every cry in the night. He loves us personally.
Today she receives a 'new set of lungs' and her Jesus is welcoming her home, in His loving arms.
Our hearts are so, so sad, but in the middle of our weeping, we continue to have hope and remember His promises.

|Saturday night, all the tiniest ladies will be wearing these fine skirts made by my talented Auntie Pat. My wild hungabee will wear the one on the far right.|
Watch out! We're a family of four now and this weekend we are on the loose.
This weekend is a "celebration of rural Alberta roots" and my clan is a gatherin' in the badlands of Alberta. There will be plenty of wild, thick, curly hair, freckles and bright blue eyes. Tales will be told and "remembering big" will abound.
Cousins will fly in from as far across that big ol' blue ocean and enchant us with their Scottish accents. Folks from the West & East coast will be on hand too, to try and verify some of the stories that are told.
My heart is full to the brim to be able to arrive with my two little girls, one barely on this fine planet for two weeks.
It's going to be a blast, most likely a little crazy, but family is what makes life Beauty Full. Relationships are all we can take with us when leave this Earth and are the only thing worth investing in. When we are reminded of the fragility of life, relations are the first thing that rise to the surface of what matters.
A little bit of yeehaw is going to reign this weekend and I'll be happy to report back to ya'll to let you know how it went.
***Thank you for all the well wishes and congratulations on the birth of our second girl. The transition has been smooth and we are all doing well. Please continue to pray for a miracle in my Aunt's health; we know that our God is good.***
