He was right. That vacation was the last one I took with my parents and my siblings. I never again rode in the car with them singing hymns as we tooled down the highway.
I do have precious memories of my time home with my family. I had a younger brother and a younger sister. They were funny and loving and I can't imagine how my childhood would have been without them.
I'm thankful for a little brother who was a willing sidekick in all the schemes I could think up, and for my baby sister, who taught me all I knew about babies and toddlers.
I married and moved a thousand miles away and life took us all in different directions. I like to think that someday we'll be singing together again, if not traveling highways here, then on streets of gold there.
All during the month of November, I will be sharing my gratitude for all God has given me. I'm joining Joyful Reader on her Giving Thanks Challenge at her blog, Encouragement for Daily Bible Reading.
