I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends...
Yesterday, my old friend Karin sent me these pictures from our teen years and I was thrilled because I only have about five pictures from that time and always wanted to show my daughters a view of my past! My friends were a real lifeline to me back then, since my mom had many issues that made my home life stressful. I can't help but believe that it was "Divine Providence" which led me to these particular people because they filled my days with fun, laughs,and a sense of security that my home didn't supply. Their parents and siblings were nice to me too and I went along with some for a few family style vacations. And I believe God used that time to show me that He was real and that He loved me and was looking out for me even though, at that time I had doubts.
Don't these pictures make you think of "The Wonder Years"? (one of my all time favorite shows!)
These were taken around 1973!! Yep, I'm ancient!!
