It's Wednesday's Walk Down Memory Lane when I link up with Jenilee of the Goodwin Family blog.
This memory is from way back around 1975. Many of you probably weren't even born yet; lol.
My parents moved to Clearwater, Florida and my cousins came to visit.
Don't laugh and remember it was about 1975 and check out my hair; yikes ...Farrah Fawcett was the rage!
This is my cousin Linda, my younger sister Christine, cousin Susan and yours truly holding Linda's baby Danielle.
This is a photo of my Grandma and my mom. My grandparents first moved to Florida and my parents followed several years later.
Remember Danielle, the little baby I was holding? She's married and is now a mom of two little girls; Allison and Kristen. Can you believe how quickly time goes by?
My cousin Susan met her husband while working on a missionary ship. They have two sons who are grown.
My cousin Linda has been married to Pastor Ron Braaten since 1973. Ron's mother and father were in my parents' wedding party in 1950. Growing up we always attended each other's birthday parties.
Linda and Ron continue to serve as missionaries in Belize. Although they finished raising their own children, they have a heart for children and have raised several who needed a home. I receive email updates and often read that another child needed a home so of course, they say yes. They are truly serving the Lord.
Life goes by so very quickly!
As I take this walk down Memory Lane, I'm amazed at the amount of time that has passed. I encourage you not to take those family moments for granted.
Treasure them in your heart and ...love one another.
Blessings and love,
