Over the weekend we had several family gatherings with my folks. Supper out on Saturday night and a coffee and goodies get together between church services on Sunday to celebrate their 65th Wedding Anniversary.
My baby brother and sister in law from far away were able to attend. My sister came from a ways away…that left us locals….me and my other baby brother.
Baby brother, me, Dad, Mom, my sister and my other baby brother.
I am the oldest, followed by my baby brother when I was three, then my other baby brother when I was nine and I was almost sixteen when my sister was born.
At breakfast Dad said “If I had been killed in Korea you would have been an only child…instead look how we were all blessed with your brothers and sister.”
Dad and Mom 65 years and 4 days and counting.
