One blessing I have in my life is that I have three very kind older brothers. The eldest brother Tom is almost like a Father to me, even though he is not that older than I am. Ever sinceI first came to the United States, I spent most of my Thanksgiving or Christmas with Tom's family. In my effort of cleaning up the house, again I got distracted by some old pictures. And the following three were taken in the Christmas of 1973. Janice made the dress for herself and Margaret, and the bowties for Tom and Steven. My appreciation of the "warmth" of a home is mostly connected to Tom's home.
