I don’t know how many of you have been keeping up with Rory Feek’s blog, (This Life I Live, scenes from one man’s extraordinary, ordinary life), but this very strong, very brave man has been sharing a lot with fans. He titled today’s post “four rings and a baby”. I hope you will all go read it – the second paragraph explains the title of his article.
The mood of the article quickly changes from that happy day in 2002, when Joey and Rory exchanged their vows, to the sadness that surrounds the family today. The article is about a Mother saying good-bye to her family.
Here is a just a little of what Rory said in today’s blog post: “The girls drove up here from Nashville yesterday to see Joey and spend time with her, and to spend time with their baby sister Indiana. Joey is still sleeping a lot and she hasn’t been outside the house in over a week. Too weak and too tired to even try to get up and go out. But today she did.
The sun was shining and a slight breeze was blowing the golden leaves that were falling from nearby trees, as Joey got up from her bed and stepped through the back screen-door and found a spot between the girls on her mama’s porch swing.
And she held their hands in hers and talked with them.”
In every picture we’ve ever seen of Joey and Rory Feek, you can tell how much they love each other, and how important family is to them. Fans, family and friends are all still praying for a miracle for Joey. Everyone plans to join together in on Thursday evening. I believe miracles happen every day.
I am so happy to own some of their CDs. We’ll always have this great country music. And, we’ll always remember Joey.
