Once this was a busy and bustling place. Filled with visitors, family and friends.

Now it is rather bleak, those visitors, no matter who, always welcomed, fed have gone on. Some grown and moved, some to ‘higher callings’.

There are days when the ’empty arms’ is a good name for this house on Sunrise Ridge. No one here but me, but everywhere I look, there is a great memory of days gone. Joys and sorrows, failures and triumphs. Proof of lives well lived and things cherished.

I have here, time in a bottle, moments of life and love to re-live any time.  Yes, some days it would seem the arms are empty now, but nevertheless, the heart is full!
