Family-Stronger through Tragedy.
Our family has had a rough year this past year. 2 broken legs, 4 funerals, and at the time of this picture , we had lost the Matriarch of the family our jewel my husbands Mother, the day after she died, our youngest daughter had to have emergency back surgery. For a ruptured lumbar disc. Yet here. Our young ones were all smiles and kisses though it had only been less than two weeks since her death and our daughters surgery.
Like the century old barn behind them, they are made of strong materials and will endure despite the floods that may come.
