Truly Blessed

Truly Blessed This Saturday will be nine years since our Dad passed away. I lost him three months before I lost Cathy. Lost is only a temporary word. One of the memories of Dad that will not let me go is a time he had taken my brothers and I hunting. A rabbit ran into…

In Like a Lion
