81/365 Family

It's what family is all about, coming together in good times and bad. While my brother-in-law had procedures and operations, moved from one hospital to another and literally was fighting to get his life back, we did what family does. We came together and cried, laughed, hugged, made meals, cleaned house and even mowed the lawn. In the midst of all this, my baby niece celebrated her first birthday. We miss you Steve!!

The things we do for family. It's feels so much better to be doing something...anything...to help!

Even the dog wants to help...or maybe he's pointing out landmines!
