For the Brooks family...

Monday is here....
Boy those weekends just seem to fly by, I know mine did anyway. I did get several things accomplished on my to-do list, so I feel pretty good about that.

I don't enjoy making sympathy cards! This one is for a dear friend of our family. When we lived in Lynchburg VA (while Mike was finishing his degree at Liberty University from 1997-2000), we got to know the Brooks family very well...Don employed Mike, Ruth was our Nurse Practitioner (and Ashley's while she was away at LU from 2004-2007), and our kids were in youth group together. Last year we found out that Ruth had breast cancer, and we had not really heard from them for some time, well I found out that Ruth passed away in March. So sad! I have been thinking about her and the family ever since I found out. We know she is in heaven (and no longer suffering), but it is still hard to think about Don and the kids living without her. I know we were blessed by knowing her! Lift a prayer up for the Brooks family today!

I hope you have a terrific Monday!
