Summertime in the South!

The Lippy Clan got back from the beach this past Saturday. We made our annual trip to the beach, Destin this year. This was our first trip ever to Destin. We usually go to PCB! We discovered that you see more "upper" class people in Destin. PCB has more of the Redneck Rivera bunch!! I was surprised but I did like Destin. The water was beautiful and we got to spend the week with my sister, her husband and his twins. I am discovering the older I get the more I enjoy doing NOTHING!!! I like to sleep late, take my time getting ready for the beach, stroll down to the beach, sit in my beach chair with my toes in the ocean reading a book and going back to the room when I am good and ready. Then of course comes my favorite thing - EATING OUT!!! I will eat breakfast and lunch in the room but dinner, I have to eat out. We had some great seafood. Then come back to the room and do whatever I want. Play on the internet, read a book or watch TV. I can remember when we use to go on vacation I would want to go shopping after dinner, go play miniature golf or do something, not just go back to the room. How times have changed for me.

Why do bad things happen to good people???

I cannot believe I have not updated my blog since the first of May. Time Flies!!! We have just gotten back from the beach and had a wonderful time. The weather was so great. But it was a sad week too. One of my dearest friends lost her 6 month old granddaughter to SIDS. My heart is broken for her. I just cannot post right now about our vacation, because my heart is so heavy for my friend. Last Saturday mom put Emily down for a nap and Emily just did not wake up. This is something that I just cannot imagine. There were not health problems or anything. She was just perfect. As her grandmother told me - Heaven has a beautiful redheaded angel now. But I know that angel is sure missed on earth. I really do have a deep faith in Christ and I know that we are not suppose to question Him but that is very hard for me right now. This family is a good Christian family and lives a life that reflects that. I then look around and see all of these babies born to parents that honestly do not deserve them. Why? I know I will not get my answers and I have to just have faith in Christ but at times like this it is very hard. I ask each of you that reads this to please pray from my friend and her family. I believe that is the only way they will survive this event. I will post again very soon!
