My sweet friend Tranesha has asked me to tell you a tiny bit of her story. Her story is too powerful and personal for me to tell in whole. She has asked me to do this out of that desire most women have to help others out. To exhort and warn and encourage, from our own experiences.
Tranesha has a wonderful family and that includes a son who graduated a few years ago, and a daughter who just graduated this past weekend. These two are wonderful young people, who honor their parents, look out for each other and love God!
The point Tranesha wants to bring home, is that their Father, and her beloved husband very unexpectedly had a stroke that has tremedously impacted their lives in every way. As they all journey through this period of time while he works to regain health, strength and memories, the trail is marked with many bittersweet moments. Every moment, every success means so much more, every victorious moment is sweeter and richer.
As Tranesha and her husband sat together recently looking forward to the daughter's then upcoming graduation, her husband let her know he couldn't remember the son's graduation at that moment. Tranesha was so thankful to be able to go and get the album she had placed those photos in. They had a great time being able to look over the photos together and take a literal trip down memory lane!
All I could think of, is most of my photos lately, stay on my PC. I am going to be saving them to CD and taking the to the local *&*^Mart and getting them printed out this weekend. Last December we had to do a re-install on our PC and we lost TONS of wonderful, irreplaceable photos.
So from Tranesha and from me, we don't ever know what lies ahead beyond the sure faithfulness and goodness of God in the midst of it all. But, like the ants who diligently perpare for winter all summer, we want to see to the details of life and all it takes to have a grounded and established family, rich in traditions and good memories. And that even includes taking some pictures and then following through and putting those photos in some sort of album! I USE to be good at that, and am looking forward to being good at that again, beginning today as I save photos to CD.
Here is a link to purchase the items in the photo above! I thought it looked like a great deal.
Thank you Tranesha for loving others enough to share your story! Thanks for letting me tell a tiny bit of it! I hope to be able to visit YOUR blog one day, and read the rest of the story!! :)
