And while I am sad because my brother left...I think of my family in Illinois. Where a brother has left-- leaving a very empty spot. And I pray for peace and comfort in this day and days to follow. I think of the circle of life we live in and how David Scales who just passed away was the son of my great Uncle Lem. A great uncle who could bring out the "fun" in things definitely left an impression on me as did his son.
So with that sadness, the weekend was also a happy one. We had our family Christmas Friday night and I still smile of the thought. It seems "Grand/Great" Uncle Shane and the Firecracker....might not be a good combination. But boy do they have fun:) Izzy loved him. At first it was one of just Izzy watching him and soaking it all in...okay maybe Uncle Shaner is not the one to teach her how to use her power drill!
