Life has been interesting for us the past year....It has probably been the hardest year of my life, but yet the best in some ways too!! It seems that with life's trials (that I realize everyone experiences) my photography bug has faded. But, I still love to capture memories of special family times. All of our kids have RVs......and we do, too. We loaded up the trailers and went to a local area to relax for a couple of days, What fun we had!! Last fall, we almost lost a little grandson to a very rare genetic disorder that we didn't know he had. (He is holding the green fishing pole in the first photo below.) He was life flighted to a children's hospital in Salt Lake where it was touch and go for a while. He was diagnosed with Beta Keto Thiolase Disorder. Getting the simple flu caused him to get ketoacidosis that nearly killed him. That has been a bitter pill to swallow because his life will always be hard. Greg is recuperating from two knee replacements that have had many setbacks despite doing all the doctors suggested. I guess growing scar tissue is a talent we didn't know he had.... His mobility in one knee is limited, but slowly improving. The stress has caused my psoriatic arthritis to flare. Our little grandson Brighton's Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis has been worse. We are caring for Greg's 97 year old mother. Many health issues have been so difficult. So, getting out and away from the house and our problems was so good for us even if we can't hike and do some of the things we love. I'm glad we have some photos to remember the fun time. We are grateful for our family support and love. We are grateful for our faith. We are grateful for this beautiful world. We are grateful that even though some things are hard, all the most important things in life are good. Today on Mother's Day, I am feeling very grateful for my blessings!! PS....We have 15 grandchildren now.....whew!!!!
