All of our days are numbered, but if we share them with the people that matter and that we love, and endure our relationship with the Lord, what a blessing LIFE is!
Ryan and I had a great 'family' weekend in Birmingham this past weekend. From family baby showers, church, cookouts, breakfast outings, and quality time, we really enjoyed it. One of things that was a part of our weekend to treasure was seeing Ryan's grandfather, Daddy Ralph. What an amazing man! He is a United States Veteran, strong Christian man, loving husband, amazing craftsman, and has raised 3 wonderful children, 2 daughter-in-laws and has 4 grandsons and 2 grand-daughter-in-laws :)
I have loved this man ever since the first day I met him on HIS wedding day to the sweet Mrs. Margie. I was honored to be a part of their special day. They were a part of our special day back in November, as they danced the night away and showed off their moves. I LOVE THIS picture! Daddy Ralph is in his last few days of life as I type. I tear up just thinking of what a wonderful man he is. Sadly, I have already lost my 2 grandfathers, so Daddy Ralph has been my 3rd one to 'share' with Ryan. I will never forget him telling Ryan that he lost a good one when we broke up in the midst of our relationship...I knew I loved him, ha! Daddy Ralph means so much to us all and I know sweet Jesus can't wait to wrap his arms around him very soon! We love your Daddy Ralph and are so glad we got to spend time with you last weekend!
