Suzanne's Diary For Nicolas.
I read that book years ago, and I still tear up thinking about it. I don't know about you, but at the end, when we find out about Nicolas, my heart dropped. I cried, and I don't usually cry when I read. I highly recommend that book.
I'm glad you participated and did the meme. It's fun to get to know people by their answers.

I love "It Is Well" too. It's my very favorite hymn. :)

If you go to Grand Canyon, you should definitely plan on hiking I say! We did that one year with our 4 kids, they did much better than me....we had to plan it almost a year in advance to get reservations at Phantom Ranch at the bottom to spend the night. The hard part is the next day, hiking back up! But you get to see so much of it that way.
