Family Home Evening

Famly home evening the other night Julia read "God gave me eyes" to  the girls.  It's really beat up and old because it was given to me by my grandmother when the world was new to me and she was new to being a grandmother.  I was her first grandchild and WWII had just begun.  I was, and am, so familiar with that book. It was read to me many, many times.

I was so touched to think of what Grandma Cannon would think knowing that very book, after so much time, was being read again to her great-great-granddaughters.  I loved all of them so much at that moment.

That's really cool Linda. I feel like I know so much more about your parents since I've read their letters to each other. What a neat book and a special memory.
