I grew up in a wonderful home. It wasn’t perfect. My parents yelled sometimes. We had to wear hand me down clothes because we did not have a lot of money. But, compared to many other people, my childhood was perfect! It was happy. We were healthy. My parents had a strong marriage (that is still going today.) I had sisters or cousins around to play with all the time. My parents made it a great childhood.
I am so thankful I have my parents. And I am thankful that I am heading to the ‘Big City’ to pick them up for a visit!
