A Celebration

"The best and most beautiful things in the world
 cannot be seen, nor touched ... but are felt in the heart."

~Helen Keller

This is a quote I learned from a person very dear to my heart.  She has the strength and courage that you see in few.  She is loving and thoughtful.  She is smart and wise.  Life doesn't always turn out exactly the way you expect it to but she has made the very most of all she has and keeps a smile on her face and a sparkle in her eyes.  She has a beautiful daughter and very loving and devoted husband and she has a great number of family and friends who love her.

She is beautiful on the inside out!  She's the sister I never had, my cousin Renee!

This past week her family was supposed to be in Florida celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary but because of some circumstances they were unable to go and was stuck with me instead! ;).  We had a wonderful and silly afternoon capturing some precious moments, getting eaten by flies and nearly swept out to sea ( I kid ) and I was so happy to spend the time with them.

As we all learn along this road, things happen for a reason and having Faith that things will get better keeps us a little stronger.

Happy Anniversary Renee and David!  I am so happy you are my family!!
