Today marks 17 years since my dad passed away from cancer. I can't believe it has been that long. I think about him all the time. There will be a song on the radio, somebody says something that brings back a memory, I see my brother (who looks so much like my dad), hear a guitar (my dad spent hours playing his guitar), or hear a joke he used to tell. There are so many moments, events, celebrations, etc. that he has not been a part of over the years. This makes me sad. I remember his laugh, smile, how little kids just brightened his world. How I wish he were still here to experience all his grandchildren.
I am thankful that my dad accepted Christ as his Savior 5 days before he died. After years of prayer my dad finally surrendered and is now in heaven with his Savior. I am blessed to know that I will see my dad again one day. Until then I will hold him close to my heart. I love you dad and miss you very much!
I can't believe Alesha is 18 months old! She has sure changed a lot in the past 3 months. She has hit some milestones the last few days. The walking has begun. She can take a good 15 solid steps now. Crawling is still the preferred mode of transportation, because it is MUCH quicker at the moment :-) We have been learning some new words like "apple" "hot" "up" and "thank you".
To celebrate such a special day I cooked Indian food for dinner and Grandma and Grandpa Pfeiffer where in town for the day so they had dinner with us as well. We feel so blessed to have Alesha a part of our family. She truly is the perfect fit and it feels like she has always been here. Can't wait to see what the next 6 months will hold. The BIG 2nd birthday will be here before you know it. We will be having the biggest bash for her since we missed her 1st birthday. We love you AleshaMugdhaPfeiffer!
