I will be back.....

I am extremely exhausted ....even though I slept until 11:30 this morning. We visited Don at Kendal Health Center for rehab and he is looking better in color than he has in a long time. We stayed for most of the afternoon and then headed over to Chris and Dave's 50TH anniversary family reunion and picnic celebration. It was a hot steamy day but under their trees in the back of the lawn the afternoon breeze kept us fairly comfortable. There is something magical about witnessing the celebration of 50 years ...five decades of dedication to commitment, family and love for one another. They have been remodeling on their wonderful home in the woods ...and the new additions could justify any home improvement magazine. Their bedroom and her studio are breathtaking but the new kitchen defies my words to give you an adequate description. I know wee were very honored to have been included to this close circle of friends and family. I will hold this afternoon in my heart's memory for a very long time. I will share some of the photos of four generations celebrating the marriage of two very young kids some 50 years ago. God Bless you Chris and have set a high bar for all of us. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
