BIG FAMILIES


Coming from a family with seven kids, the dinner time menu was always a surprise. When there are that many mouths to feed, my Mom never ever asked us what we would like for dinner. As a child my family’s menu consisted of two choices, take it or leave it. In a big family the first child is kind of like the first pancake off the griddle , if it’s not perfect it’s ok, you just keep making more. I was the 5th pancake but my Mom wasn’t a good cook and made two more. All my siblings had their own hopes and dreams like my beautiful younger Sis who always wanted to be a movie star but the closest she ever came was living in a trailer for awhile. My hope and dream was a simple one, I wanted to be an only child but I finally realized that was never going to happen. Ah yes, life is full of disappointments but in retrospect, they made me a stronger person and that in turn helps me deal with my MS. ❤️Ro
