 I Once Was Blind But Now I See

Remembering Dad and Mom

~Remembering Dad and Mom~
God gave me the best parents anyone could have had.
Dad, Mr. Gennis Ervin Brickhouse, Sr. was always good to the family.
Mom, Rachel Elizabeth Brickhouse was the continuity of our family.
A fellow church member said it so well of Mom being the continuity for she was.
Jesus was so loving and merciful He took my little brother, Ronnie Lee in infancy.
He chose to take Mom before He did Dad.
But I remember them ever so loving and supportive of my brother, Ervin, and myself.
Our Christmases came along when we got the things we wanted plus a few extra things.
Was always good to be close to the family for there were never any hardships between us.
I remember when Mom was in intensive care.
Dad was in a nursing home.
Today, I occupy a room in a nursing facility.
Having the picture of Dad and Mom, on my wall, I am reminded of them every single day with joy.
