Dear Al, You Would Have Been so Very Proud...So Very Proud...(Music, Photos, Thoughts, Tears, Thankfulness)

I posted this most beautiful music composition I've recently discovered, it invokes so many feelings, thoughts...memories.   Please enjoy while reading and browsing...

Al, you would have been so proud, so very proud.  She looked lovely.  Could you see?  I think you can sometimes because I can feel it (Hebrews 12:1).  

 Remember how you would hold baby Zuzu over your shoulder, singing with her little baby noises, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh and you would sing with her comforting her...You would walk tall and strong, a peaceful cadence with baby Zuzu, your sweet grandbaby you treated as your own.  She was, she was because you were like a real dad.  A real dad.  A real grandpa.

I remember craving time to spend with you, Al.  I wanted to sit and and sit with you...It was very definite, and then I found out why...For you passed suddenly on to the other side with God soon after baby Zuzu's first birthday.  We miss you so, Al.  So.  Very.  Much.

Do you know that baby Zuzu would run up to silver haired men at the grocery store putting her little arms around their legs?  Thinking it was you?  It broke my heart.  It even broke our pediatrician's heart when I shared with him...It did.  I saw my pediatrician tear up too as he slowly backed out of the room.

You would hold Janie and Joycie's little hands and take them to the corner grocery in the inner city for treats... Little Joycie would later say in her five year old sweet little voice to another child at a birthday party, He was my best friend...

You should see Baby Grace too, Al.  She has light hair and grey-blue eyes...much like yours.  She's an artist like you, Al.  I wish she could have known you.

There are lots of thoughts whirring around, many things in the background.

And may I say that I am very blessed, I have the Gift of precious daughters, son-in-love and a wonderful husband who is a spiritual leader and protector.

Do you see her?  Do you see little Janie and Joycie?  Baby Grace?  Do you see them, Al?

Do you know, Al, that the young man Zuzu married is strong, gentle, and kind like you?  You should see their new little home, it's lovely...

So many things to be thankful for...

I hope you enjoyed the photos and music, thanks for visiting with me this autumn eve...Jem found this special music on spotify on the Christian instrumental or either the Sunday genre.  Enjoy and be blessed.

This evening Jem and I, hand in hand took a walk through the woods, I wearing my plaid rubber boots, cotton skirt, old linen jacket, hair thrown up...I saw a mommy cow with her baby calf in the woods...So very precious, soooo very precious.   

Good Evening, Loves,   ~amelia

Here Ye Here Ye!!!!

Last week we were paralyzed with wedding planning, on an ongoing freight train so to speak!  Wowza.  One afternoon I lay on my bed in the sunlight cherishing the quiet and peace and I hear Zuzu laughing from the kitchen to her sis..."I heard Dad over the phone at the tux place..He was saying... 'This is RIDICULOUS!'"..  I lay there and smiled hugely.  Oh my.  Yeah...The tuxedo places just ain't what they used to be I tell you, they were overcharging my husband to the tune of $200.00 with no apologies...I think their attitude is what got his goat.  Understandably! 

We all got a real kick out of it, we immediately thought of this clip above!  I don't endorse this movie in entirety but this scene is hilarious to me...It's about how one feels as a wedding approaches.  Truly so. 

But Let me say...We are resting and re-cooping after a lovely wedding that glorified Christ. We are so happy with the wedding in this most beautiful cathedral (1910), it's the kind of church you walk in and your breath is taken away...One guest was heard saying in a hushed tone as the pipe organ played..and our precious friend played violin...This is incredible. 

May God be Glorified.

The freight train has abruptly stopped now.  My head is spinning and ya know?  I'm actually glad to see Christmas catalogs.  It's a sign of normalcy in a way.

Tonight I was able to see the clouds reflect in the pond at sunset, I was able to walk in the cool grass at dusk.  Beautiful. 

Here ye Here ye!  Tally-Ho and Away we Go! Zuzu and Tommy our precious new son in love.

We had so many life-friends there who we love so much like real family and so many distant relatives who behave as a sister and brother to me.  We are so blessed.

More pics to come!

Good eve Loves,  Amelia at the Forest Cathedral.
