Brooke's Crazy Life.....

Sooo, what's new, you ask? alot lol lets see...... we had a wonderful time in Europe visiting my brother and his wife :D We went through 4 different countries there... Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland (: it was pretty awesomeeee!!! :D We spent two weeks there and they seemed to fly by. While there, we got a series of phone calls from my mom's sister (Aunt Beth).... bad calls. At first, my Grandpa Durham (mom's dad) was starting to become ill. We thought he would be ok..... he had a stroke or heart attack the first week we were over there, so he was taken to the hospital, then he was diagnosed with a different type of leukemia. Oh, by the way, at this time, my Grandma Durham was also in a hospital because her stool kept gathering in her stomach and she was having trouble with her health even more. So, while in Germany, my grandparents were in different hospitals in MI :-/ It was tough on mom..... then came the phone call on April 6...... Grandpa Durham joined the Lord on April 5, that night... this was the day right before we left to head back to the US. Once we got back to IL, we spent the night at our house and then on the 8th we headed over to MI.... Grandma was not doing well at all :( We had 4 days left with her.... she stopped all treatment for herself, she "wanted to be with her husband and son" and that was her wish, we didn't stand in her way. At 2 AM, April 11th, my dad came in my room, woke me up with the words I'll never forget.... "Brooke, Grandma's gone." I quickly headed out to the living room to see her peaceful face.... it was true. My grandma was in heaven.

Hi from Europe! :D

So. I'm in Germany!! yayyay! (: visiting my bro and sister in law. (: the flight was great…. I was terrified when it started, but I got over that. there was a guy that sat next to josh who snored the whoooollleee flight!!! sooo annoying. Didn’t sleep much/well…. Just over the ocean, hallelujah. I stayed up mostly listening to music…. Heard a lot of good/fav ones. then the next morning as we flew near Iceland, watched New Years Eve. *love* (: after what seemed FOREVER, we finally landed in Denmark. Our plane landed on the OPPOSITE side of where we needed to go so we ended up walking through this huge airport that seemed to be a mall lol. after waiting about a half hour, we boarded our last plane to Frankfurt. That was an awesome short flight. Josh sat at the window, I sat next to him and dad sat next to me…. We all were trying to see out the window :P anywho, got to Frankfurt…our pilot took forever to land lol. and it happened again…… we had to walk alllll the way through the airport to get our luggage. -.- my feet hurt so bad. I hate tennis shoes :P we got our luggage then headed out the exit where we found a smiling boy named Nathan… ecstatic to see us all :P I got a dp shortly after that andnow I’m lounging in my bro’s living room….. *sigh* everything's good over here, how bout there?

As the deer…

I have this song going through my head and I decided that since I haven’t blogged in ages, I could use it as a post (: this song is very dear to me and it always helps me in everything (may sound a lil weird, but it does) I hope you like it, all I can give is the lyrics, I don’t know how to upload audio :-/

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after thee
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship thee

You alone are my strength my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship thee

You're my friend and You are my brother,
Even though You are a king.
I love You more than any other,
So much more than anything.

You alone are my strength my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship thee

I want You more than gold or silver,
Only You can satisfy.
You alone are the real joy Giver,
And the apple of my eye.
