Welcome to my blog Viewing My World! I have another blog A La Carte where I share my love of thrifting, tablescapes and other aspects of my life. This blog is to share my love of photography! I hope by starting this blog I will take more photos. Come along with me as I view my world through the lens of my camera.

Thankful for Tiger

This has been a challenging year in so many ways.
My oldest moved across the country from me
My son in law broke his ankle and had surgery
My brother is in the last stages of liver failure
But despite all the I have been blessed in many ways
Love of family and friends
Good health 
and the best blessing of all
The birth of my Grandson
William Tiger 
8 lbs 6 ozs of pure love
I am so proud of my daughter Sara and my son in law Blake...they are awesome parents
This little guy has brought me so much joy! 
I am thankful for so much but especially
for Tiger!

I have missed my Grandson while I've been in Texas.  I will be spending the coming weekend with my daughter, SIL and of course Tiger!
Just a few pictures they have sent me!
Milestones while I was gone....
Sitting up really well!!
Posing with Mommy....is this not the cutest picture!
Standing in his crib....
Mommy was lowering the mattress right after this picture was taken! 

and the cutest pic of all
Driving Daddy's truck!  Well really I think we might have about 16 years before we have to worry about this milestone!

Joining Alphabe-Thur with Miss Jenny

B is for brother 
Me & My Brother

How do you say goodbye to someone you love for the last time?  How do you drive away knowing that you are leaving a part of yourself behind? 

I did this.  I visited my brother for what is probably the last time today.  I am flying home on Friday. Today we talked about family, childhood memories, forgiveness, faith and love.  I shed tears, he stayed calm....he is at peace...I wish I was. 

How do you say goodbye to your childhood friend, keeper of secrets, partner in crime and so much more....I don't know. 
I could only say
I love you!

I know I'll see him on the other side
