In one of my earlier post I mentioned that I would be vacationing in St. Petersburg, Florida this week. Well, I am here !! My husband and I love the beach. It is one of our favorite places to be. To me, there is no more beautiful place !!
This morning we will pack our cooler and head to the beach. We will set up a canopy and spend most of the day between the beach and the pool. We also try to get in a few walks each day.
My mom is with us this year. It has been a little hard on her. Actually this has been a difficult year for my entire family. There has been a lot of changes in our lives this past year. My father and father in law have both went home to be with the Lord.
Some of our best memories of them are of our families spending time together at the beach.
Papaw Spencer would set on the balcony and smoke his cigars and watch the kids enjoy the pool. He loved to take his grandsons deep-sea fishing. He loved the Sunny Side Grill in Panama City. The best breakfast ever. Or that is what my son Chris says!!!
Papaw D would do whatever. He had such an easy-going personality. He didn’t like to cross the big bridges. Really,he didn’t like the water at all. We actually got him to go deep-sea fishing one time. MIRACLE!!!
Both of these men made a big impression on their family. They both loved God and their families. This is why they did a lot of things that they probably didn’t really like or want to do. They both loved seeing their family enjoy life and being happy!!
They are not with us physically this year, but they are in our hearts !!
Thanking God today for our Papaws!!! We were so blessed to have had them in our lives!!
Take time today to tell your family that you love them. Life is too short!!!
THANK YOU PAPAW D AND PAPAW SPENCER — FOR GIVING TO THE LORD!!! SO MANY LIVES WERE CHANGED BECAUSE OF YOU!!! I KNOW YOU BOTH ARE ENJOYING YOUR REWARDS!!!
