Several weeks ago I was visiting one of my very favorite blogs, Warm Pie, Happy Home. As I was reading the post Ruthann had written, (one of my very favorite people BTW;) something caught my eye. The picture I was seeing looked very, very familiar to me. Much to my surprise I then realized it was a page out of one my favorite childhood books that my Mama use to read to me! I have such wonderful memories of that time, even now all the more special since my Mama has Alzheimer's. Somehow through my growing up years the book had gotten lost and forgotten. I emailed Ruthann inquiring about the book and she was kind enough to send me all the info. Sure enough, IT WAS THE BOOK I REMEMBERED!! Well, I knew I had to find a copy so I went to the best source I knew which was EBay! And guess what? They had a copy!!!! What's the title you ask? Well, it's The Happy Family. I remember thinking when I was a little girl I wanted to grow up and have a happy family just like I read about in the book. I loved how the mother cared for her home and family and I knew I wanted to do the same! Well, that was over 43 years ago and I am happy to report that the good Lord did indeed bless me with a wonderful, happy family, and I also have the privilege to be home and care for them!
