I don't know how people go through tough times in their lives without family. The way I see it, your family are some of the only people who will always be there for you . . . . no matter what! No matter how long its been, no matter what's happened in the past, just no matter what. But then again, maybe I'm just lucky. Maybe I've been lucky enough to be blessed with the most amazing family members ever! In the past 8 months my family - immediate and extended - has pulled in around me to support and protect me. They've listened to me, visited me, emailed me, called me, cried with me or even for me. My family members are one of the reasons I'm able to keep going.
That being said, I'd like to introduce you to my cousin Rona Kay. She came out to spend some time with us last week. And I truly enjoyed getting to know her as an adult. I think the last time we saw Rona was Christmas in 1987 when the entire Virgil family was together.
We had a lot of fun showing my Iowa cousin around the Willamette Valley. We even took her to the coast. We spent a lot of time reminiscing about our Grandparents and our visits to Grandma's house. And Rona brought flowers for the boys. If you make it to the end of this very LONG blog post, you'll see the personalized flowers she brought for my boys.
Rona, thank you so much for coming to visit. The time went way to fast!
If you make it through all the photo's you'll see some of my favorite pictures from the places we took Rona :)From left to right: Me, Rona, my sisters Elizabeth and Milne
