Family has been on my mind.

With all of the tragedy that we've seen in the lives of our friends in the last year or so, it has been my knowledge of eternal families that has brought me the most peace. We have truly mourned with our friends, and knowing that our relationships can continue beyond the grave has stopped my tears and calmed my worries and allowed me to carry on. It is a glorious promise from a very loving Heavenly Father.

Well, I don't know about you, but I love a good project. Taking inspiration from a family tree kit I saw a while ago, I have come up with this:

A 5 generation tree that socks a graphic punch. I am going to hang it in my hall. I love that I will walk by it a million times a day and see the names of people who are part of me forever.

Do you like it? Well, I will be auctioning off a similar kit on my sister's blog this Thursday, NieNie day, to raise money for our friends.

I feel so lucky to know Stephanie, to have been in her home, and to have felt her immense spirit and love of life. She is indeed a special person and my prayers continue to be with her and her darling family.


  1. it looks perfect. i just may buy your kit myself. :)

  2. not if i outbid you, les!

  5. bring it on, mrs dub! :)
