90 Years Young! What an Inspiration!!

DSC_0457 Uncle Claude inspirationThis is our Uncle Claude. Tomorrow all of my aunts, uncles, cousins, cousins kids and lots of friends will gather together to help him celebrate his 90th birthday!! Anyone that knows my Uncle Claude loves him. His quiet strength and gentle ways is endearing to all who know him. He is a farmer through and through, and I’m not sure he plans on retiring anytime soon! Uncle Claude has been through a lot. He had to bury his daughter Linda after a tragic accident. A year later my dear dear Aunt Margaret was killed in a car accident. I must admit we were all pretty scared we were going to lose Uncle Claude too. I remember just praying to God to please save him….his family, all of our family had been through too much all ready. Uncle Claude was a fighter!! Four years later and he is still going. If you visit Dairy Queen on a Sunday night you might see him there with his friends! It is such a joy to be able to celebrate with him. I am so grateful that my aunts and uncles are still a part of mine and my families life. I am glad that my kids and my grandkids know their great aunts, uncles, 1st cousins, 2nd cousins, 3rd cousins and so on. We are a close family. Tomorrow will be filled with really good food, LOTS of laughing and lots of stories. It will be a great family day. Now to me… THAT is an inspiration!!! \

Happy Weekend!!
