On this day Blessed Memories and New Beginnings

Two photos here. The first is with me and my mother and my mother's beautiful and first great grand daughter. I appreciate the photo because of the strength I experience from my mother. Taken about 18 years ago, we were at a family picnic at Bowman's Bay in Anacortes. I am deeply aware of how much our family misses my mother since her passing December 25th, just two years ago. My mother is the rock in our family and will ever remain so, and there in this photo the love is felt and beautiful memories are held tightly.

The second photo is my Great Grand Parents: Edward Kolhs, born December 25, 1879, Pommer, Scheawig-Holstein, Germany. Passed over November 26, 1958 in his home in Fruita, Colorado. Emilie Alvina Kasch-Kolhs, born October 25, 1881, Schoenberg, Germany. Passed over July 7, 1980 in Fruita, Colorado. Thank you to my beloved father for helping maintain family photos and our family tree.

My wish for you now as this 2017 year ends and the daily sunlight grows slowly and once again into spring, is that you each hold onto each other, your family and dear ones in your life. Hold tight the light of love for one another. Continue to create lasting memories built on respect for the all knowing force and ever present power behind the morning light.

"Peace... comes within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness, with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the Universe dwells Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us."
