    What a delightful photograph of your family. I’m assuming you are the baby being held by your mom, Anita. Treasure that photo always! So happy you have so many things to be grateful for this week. God is good…

    Yes, he is! I do treasure that photo, which is why I made the digital copy posted here. Four generations, from right to left: me (yawning baby), my mother Anita Abts, her mother Lucille (my grandmother), and her mother Agnes (my great-grandmother).
