My Childhood

I had a great childhood growing up with my two sisters.  A loving Mom and Dad and plenty of things.

We had rules and as long as we followed them everything was okay.  We knew our limits.

All the rules were there to help us grow up into mature adults.

I think my parents did an excellent job.

My Mom mixed in humor and you just never knew what was going to happen.

My Dad was always there to listen to the problems and give out his wisdom as well.

If I could have picked the perfect parents I would choose the ones God gave me.

So on this birthday I would just like to say

Thanks Mom and Dad

I love you! Barbara

Happy Birthday!! It's still your birthday to me, as I haven't gone to bed yet.  Sorry I missed it.  I slept for hours and hours this afternoon and this evening.  I think I must have needed it.  I LOVE all your childhood photos.  I've actually got a pic of me that looks similar.  :)   I'm so glad I know you. I hope you had a wonderful wonderful day.  Love ya, Barbara.  Barb
