The Moment….the present, the here and NOW. I notice more and more how important the present time is to all of us.
This is our time, our time to cherish, relish, and make the best of our life and situation.
But…………..I can assure you that does not always happen.
Emotions can get in the way and seem to consume us. Frustrations seem bigger. Suddenly out of nowhere, tears begin to surface. Anger rears it’s ugly head. Teenage emotions/hormones suddenly erupt into the chaos of the moment.
Alzheimer’s is not a pretty disease. It robs you of so much more than just memories. It steals your motivation, your confidence, your ability to reason.
There are good days, difficult moments, frustrating times…….BUT through it all we are a family! And we need to support, pray for and help each other along this difficult journey.
And that is where Ashley came to our rescue!
This wonderful young lady took some amazing family photos for us. They capture US…..our goofiness, silliness, humor and LOVE.
These pictures are so much more than just a nice family picture. They represent
the struggles we face TOGETHER
our LOVE for each other
a moment in time
So please allow me to indulge you in some of these memory makers. They mean so much to me!

My big baseball boy…I really love these shots, they capture Tyler!
My sweet girl…looking so much older than 14!
Me and my girl Madi…..do you see the Amish buggy that was going by in the background!? I just love this pic.
The woods behind our house…..always one of my favorite places. It’s so peaceful and calm back there. A refuge from
the storm of life!
Yes we ARE A FAMILY!
Thank you Ashley…..isn’t she the greatest. And such a beautiful young lady!
