The Barlocker Family
...and there ya go. Amazing. Why didn't I see this before?
So this is my family. They are quite entertaining. All different. I love them all. They all make me laugh, cry, feel joyful and frustrated. I love those little grandkids. I can hardly wait to see who they will be. Heck, Im still waiting to see who my kids will be. Most of them are still finding themselves, and it's an amazing adventure. I love growing old and having family around me. I stand in awe at Heavenly Fathers plan for us, and am amazed at all the little details He has thought of before we even are aware of them. ... and so grateful for that.
That man in the middle holding the baby. He is the Love of My Life. I am planning on growing old with him. When I was young and the kids were taking all my time and we didn't get to spend a whole lot of time together, I worried if we would be able to handle large doses of time together without driving each other nuts.
As I am getting older and having that opportunity of spending more time with him, I am finding that I love it! I cherish those times that we are alone, and I'm very comfortable just being by him. I find that we really don't need to talk, but can be content just being there. It's nice. Young was good and it was fun and I definately had more energy. But getting older is ... fulfilling. Life experience makes you see things from a different perspective and Im glad that Im getting to experience that. It makes me more thankful for all the blessings in my life. And my family is definately that.
