And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

Sunriver - Again (updated)

We are back in God's promised land. It is SO beautiful. As a last minute thing yesterday we decided that we would try and get away for the weekend. Daddy has to be in Court over here on Monday and so we called Debbie and asked if the house might by chance be available and it was! There is about 6 inches of snow on the ground here and all the roads in Sunriver are snow covered.

The drive over consisted of about 30 miles or so of the highway that were snow packed/ice covered roads with lots of people sliding around and all two wheel drive cars has to be in chains as were most of the trucks. Mommy's van did quite well and it was uneventful.

We stopped at Izzy's in Bend for dinner and actually had a family dinner out at a restaurant. Both girls ate well and behaved. It was really weird to find something else that we almost felt like a normal family again. Some "brilliant" lady referred to Rebekah as a "he" and we politely corrected her; then she asked "What did you do to her hair?" We both just let it go...

Daddy has not been posting this week (or reading anything); kind of a break. There is a lot pent up and maybe, just maybe I will write something intriguing this weekend.

For now we are tired from a long drive over and just want to relax. Good night.

Saturday Morning, March 11th. Up early and enjoying the quiet and beauty. The weather is very cold (10 degrees) and coffee exceptionally tasty. This is what I mean by God's promised land:

I know we have said it many times but honestly we cannot ever say it enough. Thank You to all of you who have helped us survive this last year. Obviously we cannot sit here and not be thankful to so many that we never will be able to list them all.

And I know we have said this before (See this Post from last time we were here), but as I read through the guest book at the Dunham's home here and think about what they have done for us the last year I am brought to tears at how wonderful these people are. They have been angels to SO SO many people.

Last time we were here was the week before Thanksgiving. Maybe this is just another THANKS GIVING weekend.

Sat 1:10 in the Afternoon. A quick walk/sled in the snow:

Sorry the phone camera doesn't do to well in the bright snow and I forgot to grab the real camera.

It's so nice to read about the "normal" things of life! I am so thrilled that Rebekah is enjoying her baths once again --and that she's busy "mentoring" Sarah!

I'm still reading --and still praying --and still knowing that our God is awesome! I can almost see Him smiling a gentle smile as if to say, "hey, it's alright..." as I read the account of the woman in the restaurant making a comment about Rebekah's hair! ...knowing that He will continue to be faithful!

Enjoy your weekend!!!
...praying daily!
