There aren't too many of those feisty Finn ladies anymore are there?
I feel bad for the generations to come who will never know some of these women. They survived life's hardships and grew to be very tough indeed ... with marshmallow insides.
I remember eating the most wonderful stew piled on top of my piece of flatbread! It was, oh, so yummy.
A visit with Elvin to our house during winter services. They came to coffee along with Harry & Audrey. The discussion turned to empty houses and no children around. Julia said she was so happy when the kids & grandkids were there. The more people around, the better it was. She didn't like an empty house. Audrey couldn't quite understand how one could feel that way!
Yes, the voice was certainly unmistakable.
The laugh and the hug every time I saw her.
There were certainly other pieces of this dear woman. Like the tree switch in the Virginia church. It came all the way into the church bench to shapen up wayward children. She is the only woman who could have every gotten away with that one.
She had many trials in this life, but was so richly blessed and rewarded in the end.
What a victory she has gained.
