Aaron was able to come home last weekend to visit with the Yuppa’s. It was great having them all here! It goes without saying that we missed the Campos family from the West coast. The good news is that Marlene gets to go there in just a few weeks to celebrate Mateo’s first birthday!
Jade had a great time playing with some of the toys that Aaron grew up with. Yes, the “Weeble’s are that old!” The van he has is one that he painted when he was really young, it was the “A Team” van. Neither one cared that they are near antique, or maybe more accurately described as vintage.
There is a recurring theme of Aaron holding his nephews with his “sleeve” in primary view. I wonder if this is a sign?
It’s great to have an Uncle to play with! Mommy doesn’t even make me pick up the toys, and Grandma could care less!
It was so much fun spending a few days together. We took the kids to show them our new home that we are moving into and got to take them to our church home and introduce them to many of our friends there. They stopped by the Faith Riders Sunday School class and were treated like family…because we all are!
One of the many things I’ve learned from Aaron is the need for “community” in our lives. Just as we have prayed for him for many years, it was his prayer for us that we would find a community to plug into. He saw that as the missing link since we moved from Ohio, and now that it is complete, we feel complete too! We are so very blessed to have an awesome family that loves and serves the Lord Jesus Christ! We learn from and encourage each other, and life is so very good. It was awesome going to church together and discussing Poly’s message at lunch, just like we used to do when they were kids. The difference now is that they are adults and have great ideas and insights that they share with us, and we are the better for it.
Yep, I’m so blessed to be healed from cancer and alive to enjoy the stage of life we are at now! Praise the Lord!
