It was a year ago today that we lost Jim.
I think we're just now coming to terms with it all. Jim died suddenly and we then had to immediately focus our attention on getting Reid well. It's only now that things are starting to settle down a little and we have time to reflect. Things are semi-normal now...I think. I'm not even sure what normal is any more.
So, today we try and remember the good times.
He was so proud of his sons.
I have so many great pictures, but unfortunately they're all slides. I do have a slide scanner, but I've never quite gotten the hang of it. A couple of the above pictures were slides that Troy scanned for Jim's funeral. I really need to get more scanned so we can look back and remember.
One of our favorite places in Texas is Brazos Bend State Park. Over the years we went for many hikes at Brazos Bend and saw lots of alligators! A couple of weeks before Jim died we went to Brazos Bend and had a little picnic. Neither Jim or Reid felt up to hiking that day, but we still had a good time.
It was a restful day.
We did take a quick look at some alligators.
I'm glad that one of our last outings was to a place we really enjoyed.
Today is a day of reflection. I'm thankful for the years we shared together. He was such a good man. I thought he would always be here, but I was wrong.
