My oldest sister Frances, a wonderful mother of 5,  had an old beat up van that had a beautiful sticker on the back.

The sticker was a picture of the earth with beautiful writing, “PEACE ON EARTH”.

Frances told me that every time she drove that van she would say, “Peace on earth…” and then she would add “…and in this van”.

“Peace on earth and in this van”.  I love it.

Today for the first time Jacoba put on her own seatbelt. 

We are getting closer to peace…
