I was thinking about my Mom and my Grandma and all the memories I have of them. I have been working on a family directory and it is quite the undertaking! But one I assigned myself to and one I am getting so excited about. One of the questions I asked everyone to answer was to share a memory from their childhood. Boy oh boy! This brought back SO many memories!
Growing up in the country with only my sibling to play with is the perfect recipe for many crazy family adventures. Everything from swimming in the canal to chasing pigs to Sunday dinners made up my childhood. We would ride our bikes to the corner store (which is like 2 miles away) and spend our money on candy and soda before making the trek back. If we were lucky, someone driving by would toss us and our bikes into the back of their pick up and drive us home. Growing up in the late 80's and 90's was magical to say the least!
When times get messy for me, I often think about my childhood and the lessons I learned. You know the saying, "Everything I learned, I learned in Kindergarten". Well, I think it should be "Everything I learned I learned on the farm"! I naturally learned about friendship, faith, love and hard work. There is a movie coming out this week that teaches that as well. You can see the trailer here"
A heartwarming family film is releasing this week. Distributed by AMBI Distribution, BEYOND THE SUN, is a modern day tale of hope, faith and courage based on stories from the Bible. This delightful family movie chronicles the adventures of four young friends in search of God.
