365 Grateful – 122 – 2nd October


122-1122-2

Today I am grateful for a day of sunshine to enjoy fish and chips on the beach for lunch and a fun time at the playground.

I am grateful that we had a fun and peaceful day today with time to reflect on the 20th Anniversary of my brother, Stephen.  I couldn’t resist including a few photos from the past.

It’s been a long time and it’s hard to think that Andrew, Eva and Hugo have never met him.  God has taught me so much through losing Stephen.  Twenty years later, as a parent, I have an amazing admiration for my parents and their survival through such an experience.
