To all of my readers, I recently spent some time assisting my  mother-n-law with her daily needs, due to a fractured pelvis. We spent countless hours sitting on her swing discussing her parents, her life as a girl,  and special moments raising her children.

Forty-two years ago today a seventeen year old unwed mother gave birth to a 8lb 13.5 oz baby boy at 4:43 in the afternoon. She thought she would not survive the experience.

I still feel that love. I am so grateful. Cheryl Lewis
