A layout in response to Anna Aspnes journaling challenge from last week, and using a template she designed, clipping masks “Scriptease and FotoBlendz” by her with BG paper from Katie Pertiet's “EatCakeSolids”…thanks for looking!
Journaling:
I watched my beautiful bride walk down the aisle of the First Baptist Church in Bogalusa and saw love in those eyes that would never fade.

I walked my two daughters down the aisle, and gave them away to their new husbands.
.
I watched my only son get married as his best man.

I carried a teenage daughter to an out of state residential treatment facility when we knew that we had done everything possible, but couldn’t seem to help her. I stood with my wife 18 months later as she graduated from the program.
.
I held my 8 day old grandson in my arms one Sunday in the NICU after his heart had been racing at 210 bpm for days without response to medication…God allowed his heart to slow down for 15 minutes while he was in my arms, and through this let me know he would be ok.
.
While on a weekend vacation with my daughter, son-in-law, and infant grandson I heard a cry of anguish and despair from my daughter on the phone in the other car saying that Ethan was having a seizure. We prayed aloud in the car on the way to meet them in the ER in Houston, and sat with them until he was seen and released in good condition that night.

I walked in the hospital room and sat down with my Dad to tell him he had widespread cancer. I listened as his stomach began to noisily growl after absorbing the news.

Perhaps because of the places I have been, I am very grateful for simple things, such as the love of my family, holding hands with my wife, hearing my grandson laugh and watching him grow, and enjoying time with my children, who still seem to enjoy being with us.
