I don't know why we have all done so well in our marriages and raising our children. Without exception they are exceptional, loving, successful children. Without exception. And, there are 13 nieces and nephews.
Well, I do know why--all those prayers for the five little girls and the baby brother--grandma and grandpa, great aunt VS, aunts, uncles... we were a family of prayers. We sure had our dysfunctions, but still they prayed.
