Little did we know what God was doing many years ago, when I met Gerry. Gerry was a home therapist for Ray before I ever even happened upon the scene. In fact, Gerry's daughter Brie was one of the first to work with Ray. Gerry is a woman whom you just want to be around. She is a true servant, a wonderful mother and grandmother, one of the finest hostesses ever and a faithful, faithful friend. Her faith needs no explanation, she and Jim live it every single day of their lives.
As many of you recall, Jim accompanied Rob to China (these two men had only met once when they boarded that plane for Beijing). He is a man of honor. His dedication to his wife, family and his remarkably difficult job is endless and his devotion to God even more amazing. Jim is recovering from a bone marrow donation that took place last week. As if travelling around the world to help a friend receive their baby doesn't earn him sainthood, I believe the donation just might:)
We spent some time with Gerry, Jim, Brie and Josh this week and needless to say a good time was had by all.
Sometimes Emily takes my very breath away
Brie and Emily racing (check out Emily's arm, girlfriend is trying to win!)
They shared a lot of giggles; Brie and her husband are teachers, when she broke out the Hannah Montana and Camp Rock tunes, Emily placed her somewhere in the realm of perfect!
I love watching Jim's reactions to Hannah - he was one of the first to hold her, talk with her, get her to smile and he still has a way with her - she was grinning up at us in this picture
