All 4 of Us


During this hard time we are going through with grandpa, I have to say a smile was brought to my face yesterday. All the Elton kids made it to the hospital to see grandpa and support the family. As soon as Bethany heard the news of what was the latest, she left the party she was at to be by the families side. My brother drove home from TIU to see grandpa and spent several hours at the hospital. During this hard time, family and the Lord are the stability that we all have.

As Thanksgiving approaches and my heart is filled with sadness towards the situation with grandpa, I have to say that God has blessed me and I am so thankful for an immediate family that supports, encourages, and prays for one another. As my dad said yesterday, if he had nothing at all, he would still be happy with having us kids and his wife who serves and loves the Lord...to him that means he has everything.
