Events in our lives create lasting impressions. Some are obvious and have an immediate impact, others simmer over time and, without our realizing, become imbedded in the way we conduct our lives. These are memories of a time in my childhood when 3 generations of family worked together to change a 2 room hunting cottage into a 4 bedroom home. The lasting impressions still simmer in my heart.
