REVEAL: Memories and Thanks Blog Hop

 “The reason birds can fly and we can't is simply because they have perfect faith, for to have faith is to have wings.”
J.M. Barrie, The Little White Bird

In memory of my in-laws, 
Allie V.  Richardson Turner and Saul L. Turner

 God truly blessed me when he sent you and your beautiful family into my life.
 I thank God for you everyday.
I miss you both SO much.
My prayer is that I will see you both again. I NEED to see you again.

This post is part of a special "Memories and Thanks Blog Hop", sponsored by our own Lori Anderson.

Oh, Shelly. This made me tear up. Beautiful quote. Beautiful earrings. Beautiful love.

Gina Hockett said...

What an inspirational quote! The earrings would remind me every day...they are so adorable! Seems like you were blessed with inspiring in-laws, something that isn't heard of very often. Amazingly, I loved mine too, (shhhhh--all three sets of them, lol!).

Marlene Cupo said...

Such a wonderful tribute to your in-laws and knowing what a wonderful and kind man you have in their son, all I can say is: How'd that happen? BUT you know I love ya!

Alicia said...

Shelley - this is odd: although your post is short, I can feel the emotions that fill it. It is a wonderful tribute to a couple I am sure you have loved (and still do) dearly - and the piece you have created is just perfect!

Jean said...

Well I am in tears. That is a beautiful tribute to two beautiful people.
