Oh Rita, this was a joy to look at. You remind me a tad of Lady Di in that photo of you and the 2 kiddos sitting on a step or something. It has to do with the way your had is angled and the smile I think!
Oh and how come with each photo of you with a few more Years on you, you look more and more like OUR MOM!?? LOL

What a full and adventurous life you've had! I hope you write a book eventually. ;o) You should look into Growth in Faith (in the Tampa Bay area) next year - maybe you could be a speaker for one of the minisessions.

Ok.... I know all the kids and remember them, but where did they come from. I was sleeping through the whole era I think, and now where did they go?
