This is my grandma’s original table. I love looking at this picture. It brings back wonderful and happy memories of visiting my grandparents on their farm. There always were people sitting around this table. Eating, laughing, and talking. My grandma was always cooking and baking. My favorite thing she baked was …. buns. Pretty simple, but oh my goodness, they were TERRIFIC. The smell was maybe even better than the taste.
I can’t imagine how hard she worked when my dad was growing up. My grandpa and grandma had 5 children in a 2 bedroom house. They farmed, worked hard and did not have a dime to spare. Because of this, all 5 of her children are hard-working and appreciative for the little things in life. They also have a special bond that anyone can observe. AND they get incredibly giggly when they are around each other. This picture above says it all.
The kids absolutely loved visiting Grandma’s place. They took everything in and had lots of questions The one thing that all of them found quite crazy was the phone on the wall. Many intellectual questions arose like “What is that spinning thing” and “You have to wait that long for each number to go around” and ” You would be soooo unlucky if your number was 999-9999 – it would take a year to dial.”
I took this picture thinking of how much my grandma would have liked seeing two of her sons and just “a few” of her great-grandchildren filling up her table. Grandma was a wonderful lady. She made her home into a loving – happy home. Her family values, work ethic, and just plain and simply being a good person, has now been passed down through 4 generations. Thanks Grandma.
