The Temptations - My Girl

Farewell, Brother-In-Law, Until We meet Again

I walk the path of sorrow, with fresh tears in my eyes,
And loss is here beside me every night.
Yet I know that your love endures, with resurrection life
And heaven is so close, your hope shines bright.

And so I bury deep within your Father hearted love,
I let you lead my gaze up to the sky.
I drink the fountain of the dawn to fill my troubled mind,
And watch the birds lift their wings to fly.

I do not walk this path alone but close to you each day.
And as I sleep I keep your hand in mine.
And trust that you can lead me through, each dark and lonely night
'Till heaven calls me home to love divine

Husband uses chainsaw to free wife in labor, get her to hospital

A couple in suburban Atlanta will likely never forget Monday, the day they became parents of twins.
Wife Heather Yavaliollah went into labor inside their home, but couldn’t get out because a storm resulting from Hurricane Irma had knocked down a tree, blocking the door.
That’s when husband Mehrvarz Yavaliollah sprang into action.
He ran to a shed and grabbed a chainsaw that was stored under some outdoor furniture they had stored away.
Then he started cutting away at the tree.
“My wonderful neighbors saw me outside. They kind of knew the situation, so they started grabbing limbs as I was cutting them off and helped move them to the street. So very thankful to them,” Mehrvarz Yavaliollah said.
With a path cleared, the Yavaliollahs tried to head toward a hospital – but their truck wouldn’t start.
Eventually, Heather made it to Piedmont Hospital and delivered two healthy baby boys, Stuart and Solomon.
“Everything looked fine, and we were not expecting anything to happen,” Heather Yavaliollah said. “And then Irma came along and changed all of that.”
As for the boys, born a month before their due date: “Sweet little angels,” their mom said. “So Irma was no indication of their behavior.”

Back To School After Forty-Eight Years

My husband passed away June 26, 2016. It has left a void in my life. Seeing as how it came on the heels of my son's death, May 29, 2012, I'm at a loss as to what to do. So I decided to go back to school and get my GED, and possibly a Bachelor's Degree. I need something to keep me busy. All three of my children are grown and have their families. The grandchildren are all grown, all eighteen of them. The great grandchildren are at various ages, so some of them still may need my guidance a little more than the others. It's twenty-four of them, ranging from ages twenty to one years old. It has been forty-eight years since I have been in school, I wonder what has changed since I was last there. Is my brain still working or do I have to find it back in 1968? Well, we'll see.
