I am so blessed with having the most wonderful parents who raised the five of us in a such a faith-filled atmosphere. We didn’t have a lot of material things, but then, most everyone was in the same situation – no one vying for “bigger and better.” And of course…life was so much more simple. My husband (RIP) and I tried to raise our two in a like manner, and now of course, my sweet and precious one and half year old grandson, Rowan.
Material things do not make happiness, it’s time spent and love given is what truly counts.
