This is where I come from.

Married for over 60 years, these are the people who
loved me and made me who I am.
 My mom......... the sweetest woman on earth.
My dad.........a big hearted, spunky guy.
Oh, how I miss them both.
P.S. I wish I could say I take after my sweet mom, but
I think I inherited the "spunky" personality of my dad.


  1. oh, what a sweet picture of beloved parents. you are *so* fortunate to have had parents long-married and who loved you in such a precious way.

  2. Spunk is good! I too come from two wonderful parents. Are we lucky?

  3. I adore this sweet photo of your parents. I can see the kindness in your mom's glowing face. The more I read your blog the more I love about you! My roots are from the prairies of Nebraska where most of my relatives still live. My Grandpa was a twin of 15 siblings with four sets of twins. All nine of his sisters in their 70's-90's are still alive. My daughter Grace was blessed to be able to spend the entire summer with them and attend two big family reunions. She loved it so much that she wants to move their after college. My parents did not get a/c until I moved away for college. I was raised very similar to how you live. I have tried to raise my children the same. My heart is is a good life, is it not?
