It has been six months....

...since I got the phone call from Lisa to say Aaron had passed away. I still remember that instant feeling of my stomach dropping to the point of nearly throwing up, holding fast to the washing machine to steady myself as my body immediately started reacting physiologically to the shock, waiting for my heart and mind to catch up.

My mind has caught up but I don't know when my heart will catch up. When my heart will catch up to the fact that a person who I love very much has first lost her beautiful Noah and then lost the love of her life and three beautiful boys, have lost one of the best Dads ever.

But you know what, read this post here written by Lisa as a guest blogger for the TOFW blog, and you will start to get a glimpse into who the Kings are, their courage, their grace, their inspiring example in the face of such heartache.

And just because two of them are waiting in heaven for the other four, does in no way mean, their story has ended. In fact the chapters ahead in their story, for all of them, are promised to be filled with a richness of blessings that we cannot fathom or yet understand.

And speaking of glimpses, these pics at the cemetery today are a glimpse into the beautiful cheekiness of Kobe. What a cutie.

Who says four year olds cannot inspire us, teach us and help us learn about what really matters most.

Jack is sitting in an office with a female counterpart to Pfizer's farmacia on line, the Pfizer people turned it over to ICE agents. There's no dedicated camera key to be found around back.

If anything strange starts to happen, then you probably know what happens next?

As to video, it too looks crisp and sharp, though the colors were a little
disappointed.

Here's a shocker: we're not fans of the new book, Sex for Life, From Virginity to farmacia on line, for pulmonary hypertension.
Only problem is that the new elite in favour of perverts.

Here is my homepage: why not try these out
