This past week our children decided to gather for church and brunch to celebrate our 53rd wedding anniversary. It was good to gather at the church where our children grew up and hear our oldest daughter, Lynn Renee, talk about what they did as children in church and what it meant to them. Of course we could not hang around after church like we wanted to, because we had to make a luncheon appointment in Fontana. It brought back memories of the girls singing in the choir and Hardy II on the usher board and Cheryl leading groups of kids as the director of the Young People’s Division.

One of the best parts of the day was opening a treasure chest of written reflections of our lives from our children and grand children. I am taking my time this week to read and enjoy them.

I found some pictures I’d like to share with them and you.
