My siblings and I keep a group text chain going and although we don’t text each other daily (my sister and I do) we do use it to touch base with one another very frequently. When my mom was alive our conversations almost always revolved around her and her care. These days the texts are about travel, fishing pictures, upcoming sibling trip and things that make us think of one another. My oldest brother texted this picture earlier this week.
My brother and sister in law like to go to thrift stores and he quite often texts pictures of something that is from our childhood. This cookbook prompted more texts and pictures.
My sister immediately texted these.
Not to be outdone, I quickly sent these two pictures.
Apparently it was the traditional ninth birthday present from my parents but neither of my brothers got it. Guess it was just for the girls. Funny story- in high school when my older siblings were students there was a test that could be taken and the highest score on this particular test received the Betty Crocker award. My sister won it and my oldest brother did as well and he did it without even having this as his ninth birthday gift. Smile.
I love memories like this. Sharing things with my siblings makes me happy and I am so grateful for texts like this that bring a smile to our of our faces with a memory from years gone by. Have you been reminded of something from your past this week? I would love to hear all about it so leave me a comment and Comment for a Cause for National Parks and Recreation Association.
