Yesterday was certainly an emotional one. We gathered, Laels and friends, to say good-bye to my uncle, Jack Lael. We will all miss him very much. He was a genuine cowboy, the real article. My cousins, Barbara Lynn, Becky and J.D. were all there to say farewell to their dad. Later, J.D. took out his guitar and sang, and it lifted all our hearts. Jack left these three a legacy of courage, laughter in the face of adversity, and good old-fashioned grit–along with good looks. They all inherited their mother, Arlee’s, talent for art. I’m so proud of all of them.
In the evening, I saw the ad for “Last Chance Cafe” for the first time. I can’t believe it–the time is finally near–the movie will actually air on November 13–this Monday! I am so excited.
That’s life, isn’t it? A combination of joy and sorrow and everything in between. What a rich tapestry the Lord weaves for each of us.
