Hi there, glad you stopped by. Let me tell you a little bit about us. We raised our family in Oregon on a big Asian Pear Farm in a 22 room Farmhouse.. We had 2200 Asian Pear Trees. ( I helped plant them all!) on 10 acres of ground. We had lots of room for the kids to run and play and work.

We had a lot kids of our own and took on the responsibility of having a lot of Foster Kids in our home. (we had Yours, Mine, and Theirs)  Let me say this one thing about these kids, they come from rough backgrounds and never got the Love a real family can provide. So it is very hard for them to trust another adult. 

Sometimes we made progress with them and we hope they will remember the memories we shared together.

I was given advice about raising these kids from a caseworker who said if you put a “Spark Of Hope” in them and someday they remember that and become better people you have done a Great Job. We hope we did that with some of them.

But remember make sure you do not forget your own FAMILY while you are doing this.

We planted 2200 Asian Pear Trees and built a big barn with coolers in them. We put up a big above ground pool and had lots of fun in the summer timer.  

We raised cows, a peacock, rabbits, lambs, pygmy goats, and a llama.  We also had dogs, a cat named Ben that loved to lay on the waterbed, and gerbils until they multiplied so much they had to leave. 

It was everything families need to experience. When we moved to the farm we had a piano.  Well sometimes things happen and it fell out of the truck (husband did not tie it in right, just saying ) and there went the piano. Well we had the opportunity to get a player piano that was 100 years old that played beautifully.  As a family we would get around the piano and sing and made more memories.

We grew a HUGE garden and we canned everything we could. From Peaches, pears, applesauce, pickles, grape juice, cherries, and more. I had a man come out and cried when he saw our pantry because he said it was just like his mama use to do. He said they knew the family would make it through the winter with all that food. 

All of our kids are grown now with children of their own and that means we are grandparents. We Love It!!  Our kids are scattered all over the United States and sometimes it is so hard to see everyone. Remember FAMILY  (and GRANDKIDS) are so important!

“The Old Paths”

I liked the old paths, when Moms were at home.
Dads were at work.

Brothers went into the army. And sisters got married BEFORE having children!Crime did not pay; Hard work did;And people knew the difference.Moms could cook;

Dads would work;
Children would behave.
Husbands were loving;
Wives were supportive;
And children were polite.
watching_tv
Women wore the jewelry;
And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies;
Men looked like gentlemen;
And children looked decent.
People loved the truth,
And hated a lie.

They came to church to get IN,
Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly;
Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal;
And crying sounded sincere.
Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness.
The flag was honored;
America was beautiful;
And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public;
Prayed in school;
And preached from house to house.To be called an American was worth dying for;

 

To be called an American was worth living for; To be called a traitor was a shame!lolh8k-lolh6301.n.marinefuneral.0719.mgI Still Like “The Old Paths” The Best.

 “The Old Paths” was written by a retired minister who lives In Tennessee.”
