Wordless Wednesday

My aunt came bearing Christmas Gifts for the kids. Then she handed me this Bible. She said, she had it put up for me and thought I would like to share it with my children. She had gotten it for me in 1985, I do remember her reading it to me and I remember when I could not sleep at night she would rock me in a squeaking rocking chair. I think this gift touched me more now then it did back then. She is my second mom, I was lucky to have great people in my life growing up.

Recently, I was going through some of my old things and came across a journal my best friend had given me in high school. The first entry was dated Jan. 8, 1987. Lol. Awesome.
