My mother said this:
If you get a chance Les posted some old pictures on her facebook and
there is one of a really really young dad with Adam, Ryan, Rob and Tom
on his back. He really looks like a bush man. Wait til you see all
that dark hair.
I love getting to see these. I love imagining my parents being the age that I am right now. I have so much respect, and… I don’t know if I can think of the word. I am grateful to them. I am proud of them. I understand now what it must have been like to raise me and two boys. I can’t imagine doing what they did, getting through day to day, and being such wonderful parents while they were at it. I grew up dirt poor, but I never knew it. In our home, we were happy. We were loved, and enjoyed, and cherished. I know that with all of my heart, and I am more thankful for that than anything that has ever been purchased for me. Love is my real treasure.
Here are a few more pictures of Adam, Ryan and Me when we were too young and cute to ever be naughty.
(Edmonton? 5, 4, 6?)
(Edmonton again. 6, 4, 5?)
(This looks like Calgary to me. 6, 7, 8?)
