We sold our house on the highway, and our son gifted us the most meaningful gift he could have, a can of peaches. This house is where our babies learned to walk, talk, laugh, cry and everything in between. This house is where we got our first chickens, rabbits, dogs and cats oh and turtles named Fred and Gil. This house is where bike wrecks happened and rooster attacks happened. This house is where first boyfriends visited. This house is where first Nintendo games were flipped!
Many weekends 9 kids would spend the whole weekend cousins and friends would stay up all night playing games and eating cheetos.
We faced many things in that house lots of happy things and lots of real life things.
When the cabinets ran low as well as the money we managed to get by. One afternoon my son and I were just setting around talking and I asked him what would he choose if he could choose to eat. He said peaches, well of course we didn't have any. We talked awhile longer. My daughter came in from visiting our neighbor. She had a can of peaches, I said WHERE did you get those. She found them on the ground by the mailbox. She wasn't even home when her brother said he wanted peaches.
The peaches were totally a gift from God! Miracles do come in many ways even a can of peaches! As I walked out that red door for the last time, I was filled with many emotions. It's like a life chapter has been closed.
Thank you Son @crossway_woodworks for the can of peaches!
