One of the things I wanted to do this year
was to go through my many boxes of family photos
And it confirmed just how fast time passes
As I looked at picture of my 3 children as they
grew up ,,and amazed at the fact that
I have 3 grandchildren and that I am
blessed to watch them grow as well
I gave Thanks to the Lord...
As I relived all these precious moments of my life..
I opened the box of my parents keep sakes.
Old black and whites, Army awards,
school pictures, marriage license and yes
two death certificates..
My dad ~ Bennie G Turner
A wonderful son, brother, husband and dad..
and he was proud to be all the above,,
My mom ~ Sadie Marie Turner.
A daughter , sister, wife and mother of 5
She was a wonderful and loved every moment of being
and mom and grandma..
This is a picture of their 50th Wedding Anniversary party.
They were married 57 yrs before my dad went to be with the Lord
and my mom 2 yrs later..
I miss them so much..
I have been truly blessed
I have been given the honor to be a
daughter, sister, wife , mother and grandmother
God has blessed me to come from a
and has blessed me with a precious
family of my own.
I thank him for my box of many memories..
and I am sooooo excited to fill more
boxes of picture and memory's of our lives.
I pray I will never take this life for granted
and that I will always remember that each breath
is a gift, and each moment with my family is
There is NOTHING more important in this world
than My God, My Family and my love for them..
Go and make 2012
Boxes of Memories..
For you and for them...
