I've often marvelled at my elderly neighbor's ability to weather all the health crises life throws at him. Somehow, that "tough old bird" as I call him has been able to come back from all of them. I sincerely hope he'll be able to overcome this crisis.
Also, this past weekend, I helped celebrate the wedding of another neighbors' daughter. They live right across the street, and I've watched all three of their daughters grow up. Their middle daughter and her new husband started their journey through life together at a lovely ranch site in the mountains right next to Big Thompson canyon. A new beginning.
Also at that wedding was the oldest sister, who was married in a beautiful ceremony two years ago in her parents' backyard, filled to bursting with gorgeous dahlias--and loving family and friends. Now, she and her husband are expecting their first child, due in early October. New Life.
All three things happening in one week. I couldn't help noticing---and thinking.
