Thanks for your kind response and encouraging words.
One other vivid memory that I remember was on Christmas Eve we all piled in on bed and slept until Christmas morning. At that time there was 5 of us in a queen sized bed. The three girls at one end and the two boys at the other end. We had a second bedroom but in the winter time one bed was moved into our parents' room because the front bedroom was warmer than our bedroom in the back of the house. We had enough quilts and blankets piled on the bed to keep us warm until morning. Now that was some black family togetherness!
