I really like this word art for today! It shows that although we all have our differences, we are from the same place! Sometimes I laugh when I think of how different I am from my sisters and probably most my family. They probably wonder where they found me! Growing up was no different. I was the dramatic one, the one who was constantly writing a new play (or the adapted screen play for a Nancy Drew novel, in 4th grade) and coercing my siblings into participating. I really don't know why they put up with me! One of my favorite memories was when I decided that it was time to leave home. I knew more than my parents and I was ready to face the future on my own. I was 9. I did my fancy talking and convinced Rachelle to join me. I told her that I would do the dishes every night and she could watch t.v. whenever she wanted. Granted, I had no t.v. I didn't even have dishes I could have washed! Needless to say, she followed my crazy plan and we both packed up our stuff. We set up "house" in an old barn back behind our home. It didn't even belong to our parents, so I'm not sure what the actual owners thought of it all! We were happily independent for a total of 2 hours. Then I had to use the bathroom and decided to repent and go home!
But even for our differences, at the end of the day, we all enjoyed the same quiet childhood. We cherish the memories and feel thankful we have each other.
