I love this sentence:
“My mom could make an ordinary afternoon an event.”
This quote was from Lisa Jo Baker on A Holy Experience in July.
She grew up in South Africa. Here is her blog.
My mom here in this photo with the oldest of what turned out to be 8 ( by 1961 when my youngest brother Jimmy was born). This is September, 1955 as he went off to Mount Hermon Prep School in Mass. from Long Island, NY.
I had been born in May. Actually, my mom had twins( I have a twin brother) as #5 and #6.
