Sunday Snapshot!

Ni Hao Y'all
My father came from a rather large family.  He was the 2nd to youngest of eleven brothers and sisters.  Unfourtunately my Dad died at the fairly young age of 64.  I miss him terribly.  But I have been lucky enough to have lived next door to his brother, my uncle , for 20 years.  He holds a very special place in my heart.  He is 84 years old and still works semi full time as a landscaper.  He still climbs trees to cut them down. In the winter he shovels sidewalks for some of his customers who are decades younger than him!!
About 10 years ago, my aunt and uncle traveled to China and loved it!!  They were thrilled when we told them we were going to adopt a little girl from there!!  Sierra and Uncle Perry have hit it off!  We stopped by the other day to wish him a Happy Birthday.  Sierra had worked for over an hour to make him the perfect card.  One with lots of flowers because Uncle Perry loves flowers!!  The card made him cry.
Here they are sitting at Uncle Perry's huge outdoor stone table, sharing a moment together!



  1. What a precious relationship!
    And he's still cutting trees at 84? Amazing!

  2. This is love! God is good ^^
