Here is a photo of my father-in-law from last Christmas with my three children. Until the last five years, he has been a very active man. When dh and I were at his house on Monday, I was walking around his yard, and I felt sad. The big garden he always had was grown up in weeds. The rose garden he prepared for his bride of 70 years was no more. The treasured pecan trees were ravaged by squirrels. The big oak tree with the swing was a victim of one of the hurricanes. Even though now he is in frail health, he still has his sense of humor. He is so proud of his children and grandchildren. He says he has been blessed beyond measure with a great family and a great life. I would have to agree. Here's to you Mr. Mc!!
