I have wanted to do this for years, scan our family photos and today I finally found some motivation as a way to honor my parents who are far away from home this Christmas season. The little people wanted to talk to them and we interrupted a visit, but that is how my parents are. They drop everything for us, they include us in their lives, and bless us in countless ways.
I'm sure we grumbled when mom and dad took us to get our family photo taken, but I am so thankful they endured and persisted. Compiling this simple collection brought back so many memories. How I love my parents! Their love and sacrifice for our family will never be measured in words or images, but perhaps this small glimpse will give you an idea.
Today our family numbers 36 and there is still grumbling when Mom and Dad want to have a family photo taken, but I am so grateful.
I am also glad my hair grows fast. We got some great genes from our parents.
