A Little Time Away

Thanks to our friends the Vickers and the Yosts, we were able to enjoy a little time away.

On Friday, we headed to Unicoi State Park. There awaiting our arrival was the Yost family camper, completely set up and ready for us to move in for the weekend! Also ready for our arrival were the Vickers. They had taken care of everything else - food, snacks, drinks, firewood, glow sticks, s'mores and more!
What a blessing this weekend was to our family! We had the best time, laughing, hiking, resting, eating, laughing, canoeing,eating, swimming, fishing, laughing, eating, dancing and just plain having fun! Today, we left sad that it had to end, but forever grateful for the memories made!
We enjoyed being together with our friends and soaked in every moment. The warmth of the sun, the laughter of the girls, the crackle of the fire, the quiet of the night, the perfect hot dog, the glow of sky lanterns, and sticky marshmallow fingers all combining to fill out hearts.
We are so very thankful for the time away and for the time together!
In Him,
The Tates

    If love of family and friends was the only thing needed, Elena would have been healed before she ever got sick. May all four of you take into your hearts the love of all of your friends and family and use it to set you in the perfect place for his healing to take place.
