As many stories as my mom tells about her life, I am still surprised when I hear a new one. Today during the social time after her exercise class, the leader asked what the participants did with their siblings. My mom said they would go to the park on Sundays and that was a really special time for her. Later, she told me that not only her whole family, but much of the town would gather at the park on Sunday afternoons. The park had a bandstand and local musicians would perform. My mom herself even danced and played the accordion to add to the afternoon entertainment. Her face lit up as she told the story. I could see how happy it made her and that it truly was a special time for her.
I Found God today listening to my mom’s story of her youth.
