Every year brings it's trials and tribulations, but 2020 was a doozy! The new year won't magically end the troubles, but... we are a people of faith. We look forward in hopeful expectation and gratitude to 2021, and ask Mary, the Mother of God, for her protection.
We spent the first day of the new year at Monica and Inshal's home. They had such a wonderful surprise for us: a visit from Joe, our Marine! (Ok not really ours but even our kids refer to him as the favorite son.)
G-pop is the most fun!
(no, that child did not fall, he just slid down like a cat as I was snapping the picture LOL)
See? We can have calm moments.
Like all the other babies, Idalena preferred her quiet spot with Uncle Alex. He makes them feel so secure and safe.
