I’m so excited…my parents are coming over from GA today & are staying til Wednesday! They’ve only been over here once since we moved a little over a year ago, so I’m happy they are staying a few days. Here’s a pic of my family…my parents, my sister, & I…way back in the 50’s. I’m the baby in my mom’s arms (top left corner) & my sister as a baby in the larger pic. Hard to take a pic without the flash getting in the way. The little blonde in the left hand corner is me around age 2 or 3. Didn’t my parents look snazzy back then?
My parents are the best people in the world. I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful spiritual heritage in my family & it’s something I probably took for granted growing up, but it sure is something I’m grateful for now. They raised us up in the church, to love God & follow Him & it has made such a difference in my life. I couldn’t ask for better parents & I just love them dearly. They are getting on up in age (79 & 78) & it makes me realize that they won’t be around forever. They are still going strong though & my dad can’t wait to get out on his tractor in a few weeks & start the garden. They have a huge garden at their house in Murphy, NC & they also have a smaller one at the GA house. I’ve always had access to fresh vegetables…took that for granted too growing up, but what a blessing that is! My mom is bringing me a fresh batch of her canned tomatoes today…I use them all the time.
My dad is also bringing the swing he built for me when I moved in my house in GA (that I sold to move over here to AL). I was careful to remove that swing before the house sold, cause I knew that I would want to take it with me to the new house. We have a spot under the back deck that it will be perfect for, so I’m looking forward to lazing away a few hours swinging in that swing! Thanks for listening…I’m having a nostalgic moment today!
