"You are meant to grace the world with your dance, to follow the lead of Jesus wherever he leads you." - Captivating

Aside from Jesus, "...traveling is the great true love of my life...I am loyal and constant in my love for travel...I just don't care what it puts me through. Because I adore it. Because its mine. Because it looks like me." - Eat.Pray.Love.

Here you will find my travels, not just physical travels but emotional and spiritual as well...journeys to different places in the world and journeys of the heart. And, of course, fun and silliness too :)

Aunt Linda

Gave the best hugs.
Had an infectious, wonderful laugh.
The best host.
Faithful.
Follower of Jesus.
Was like a 2nd mom to me so many times throughout my life -- Jill and I often said our moms must have gone to "mom school" because they know everything.
A rock.
Approached everything with dedication and commitment
Loved family.
Giver.
Exhausting shopper.
Crafty.
Amazing cook.
Devoted teacher.
Mother, wife, sister, daughter, aunt, friend, and perhaps her most favorite role...grandmother.

Now she is dancing in heaven with Granddaddy.

Thank you for everything you taught me and everything you have given to this family. I will miss you terribly, Linda, but will see you again. Love you!!

Matthew 5:4
Psalm 130:5

A beautiful post Ashley...I know you will miss her terribly! She was a special friend to me whom I will never forget. The bond we had because of our love for Kim and Brent and then Asher was so strong. We loved being grandmas together - I miss her so much. Hugs to you, Evelyn
