Our antique, upright piano --
That strangers GAVE us a few years ago.
Marlene was telling the story of Molly's adoption and how much she needed to have her musical outlet.
Language and life were huge obstacles at the time....but a precious family gave us their piano.
We stay in touch with them.
How unselfish of them to think so generously about my little Molly - who is becoming a phenomenal pianist.
As is Emily....
The big girl dress and doll baby dress were hand me down gifts....
Mary was headed to church -
In her winter jacket and flip flops.
I did not even care.
She found a turkey decoration I was putting out and said,
"Mama. I know what this called.
I said, "Oh. You mean a peacock. Very close. It's a turkey with different colored feathers than a peacock."
