“To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

True words as I ponder the life my father-in-love has lived for 95 years and the rich legacy of family he has created. Every story shared solidifies his status as a truly a successful man.

Today we will spend the day with him again as we prepare to let him go.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. my thoughts and healing prayers are with you all.

  2. Such a beautiful quote, and a beautiful gift of stories your father-in-love is leaving. Sending prayers of comfort to you and your family.

  3. I am so sorry it is time to let go. That he has loved ones – a successful life. Blessings to you and your family, Linda.
