This picture doesn’t show you the very beginning of our journey, but from this you can see the beginning of our journey as a family of four.

In May of 2012 Freddo and I will have been married for 24 years.  On our journey we have been blessed by the Lord with two wonderful boys, Nathan and Blane.  The center of our life is Jesus Christ. He is the Anchor of our soul, Who keeps us grounded when life gets tough. As many of you know, life does become difficult from time to time.  In this picture you see Freddo, myself, Nathan and Blane as a baby, who we are all making over.  Then you see a man with dark hair and glasses, that brave man is my Dad.  Much of our difficult journey over the last few years have been because of  my Dad being diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia.  Missing from this picture is my dear mom, she would be the photographer. Most of the things you will read here on this blog will be surrounded by the fore mentioned people, whom I love dearly and the things that God is teaching me as I strive to “Choose Joy Now”.
