When I was a kid we didn’t own a VCR. No, I’m not that old, we just lived very un-extravagantly. This characteristic of my childhood always seemed like a misfortune when I was there, but looking back the memories of it all are a blessing.
Unlike anyone else I’ve ever met, we watched movies via renting a VCR from the local library; something most folks didn’t even realize as an option. & once in a while mom would make a very special occasion out of an ordinary day. We’d borrow a VCR & choose one of the movies from our collection of 3–Anne of Green Gables, Anne of Avonlea, or Beauty and the Beast. Naomi watched the latter this morning while recovering from an overnight stomach bug.
Oh, sweet nostalgia.
I hope that I create moments Naomi & Leviah will try to recreate with their own children, special times in ordinary days that won’t disappear, moments that can only be defined by love…
It’s a love topic this week, so i’m joining in.

What does a person often grow in his garden if he works very hard?
