Today is the Family Reunion. This time last year, things were a LOT different.
Last year’s reunion
Knee high rain
Before we got everybody out, water had flooded cars and rose 2 feet inside the fire station. I’ve never been in a flood situation before. The ditch was covered so I stood where the driveway meets the ditch so cars could know where to drive. When the current got too strong, I braced myself on the mailbox. I will never forget this day.
That was the last reunion for my father-in-law, Brodie. He fought a 2 year battle with leukemia. In May 09, he was taken off all chemo and told to go home to live his last 4-6 weeks with his family. This picture was taken in October 09…..a lot more than 4-6 weeks later. He lived a full functioning life until January of this year.
This year, the weather was perfect, but there was an empty chair and empty hearts.
Road trip fun.
