Two Years Ago

Two years ago today my mother went home to be with the Lord. I am still not used to the fact that she is no longer with us...hard to explain.
I was going through photos the other day and came across this one. It is me and my brother with our mother. It was taken 20 years ago in Denver. We were there for my brother's graduation. It is one of the few photos I have of me with my mother as she hated to have pictures taken of her. As you can see in the photo she doesn't look too happy.
I just have to share a funny from Hannah...she has the biggest imagination I mean it is off the charts. She was talking to her daddy on the phone yesterday...she loves talking on the phone. Anyway I hear her say "Some dolphins came and ruined up our house and now it needs to be Poodles".
Speaking of Hannah. This child's language learning skills just blow me away. I never know what language she is going to answer me in or talk to my friends in. I can say she speaks more Spanish than I do. She has built up quite a vocabulary in Mandarin I think she has surpassed me. Her inflection is perfect...I am so jealous. I can't get it as easy as her. I am teaching her the little I know of German...and she gets it just like that. And the biggest challenge learning Amharic so she can talk to her big sister. No problem...this kid can learn any language and I am just going to keep encouraging it at this young age.
We are very thankful that we have two families that are going to be taking photos of our dear daughter M*** in the next week. We can't wait to see new photos of her .
