I have devoted a lot of blog entries to my art lately, so I thought I would give a little update on the family. We had a family get-together last weekend. It was a wonderful time! We have struggled for over six years after the death of Gabe to finally come to this point. Even in a family photo taken 18 months ago you could see the separation of family members. They were standing apart from each other.
So, there is hope after a major family loss. Each family member may go separate ways for a period of time, but hopefully in the end they will come back together like our family did.
They say that a big loss will either make everyone closer or more distant. It was definitely the latter in our family. But I praise God for the closeness we now have - again.
