If you know me or are a “fb friend” of mine you may have noticed that I talk about “the farm” a lot. ”The farm” is my favorite place here on earth. It’s my in laws home in West Tennessee. I have said on occasion that I do not know what I did to deserve T Rose, but the truth of the matter is I don’t know what I did to deserve his family. I have learned more about life and love from all of them in the past 7 years than I have learned the entire 30 years I have been living here on this Earth.
My MIL is from Vietnam. She and my FIL met while he was stationed over in her Country during the War. He walked into her shop to have his very first suit tailored made. That is where he fell in love. And, guess who still has that suit? Yes, he sure does. They moved to New York over 38 years ago…and since then have had two amazing boys, moved to Tennessee and have worked harder than anyone I have ever met with their bare hands. And, still work as hard today in their 60′s! To them, family is number one. They love, they teach, they encourage, they listen and always offer a helping hand. They never judge and never have anything negative to say about anyone.
I grew up completely different than my husband. And, as an adult I recognize where I want things to be different for my boys than they were for me. There is whole lot more to life than material things. And, the one thing I want my boys to always know and believe in is that they will forever have a “HOME” to come home to. I know that is the way I feel every time I step foot into my in laws home.
We should all be so lucky to have a Charles and Tiem Rose in our life. I know I am.
