cod liver oil vs. sprinkles

When I was about 13 My Mom was in the hospital having the youngest of the Giblin kids - Sheila. Due to a complication I believe Mom had a longer hospital stay.  All of the 6 kids were farmed out to willing families to help look after until Mom was home from the hospital.  I got to stay at the Kopers!! :)  They were a large and loving brood. A memory I have is lining up with all the kids every morning  and having a mandatory tablespoon of cod liver oil.  I know its good for you.  But I really didn't like the taste.  BUT...another tradition I had never had was "sprinkles" . delicious little things. We could pick coloured or chocolate sprinkles for our breakfast cereal.  :) 

 I know we've all gone on with our lives after leaving Wildfield, and lost touch over many years.  The reconncection is instant though when we hear any news.  It's amazing though how stong the bonds we still have from growing up in our little community.  May Mr. Koper rest in peace.  God Bless Mrs. Koper and all the family.

Much love, Martina. 

And sincerest condolences from the Giblin clan, Sean, Gerald, Bernadette, Kathleen, Trudi and Sheila.

PS.  thanks to John and Roland for filling in the years, sharing stories and show and telling about the photos at the visitaiton last night when I attended with one of my brothers Sean and  sisters Sheila.   I was saddened to hear that Jody (my friend Gerdy) had passed away 10 years ago.  I was shocked to hear that as I really wanted to say hello.  Has it really been 40 plus years since we all went to St Patricks school.

PPS.  My sister Trudi's God parents were Martin and Trudy Koper.  I was talking to Trudi last night (she is out of town) and she was reflecting on lots of different stories too.   She was very fond of her God parents and remarked on one thing in particular:   how lucky she was that they remembered her every year on her birthday and sent her a gift for over a decade.

XOXO
