|The Johnsons circa 1968|
This week marked two years since my mother's death. As I look at this picture I see my father the pastor and my mother the teacher gathering us around music and I pause. My mother taught us faithfulness and my father's faith formed us into life-long learners. Who did what and when for how long blurs into my thoughts for the day. The five of us shared life for so long.
I am who I am because of that sharing.
It is an act of will to remember, celebrate, and give thanks to God.
