My memories of this book go back to 1988 when I was 10 years old I had my tonsils and adenoids surgically removed; but didn't bounce back right away Complications led to a two week recovery period where I stayed in my bedroom and rested and slept and didn't do much outside of those two things for a full 14 days My mom would come to my room each night snuggle up close to me in my twin bed and read me a story to help me ponder things outside myself Oh how I felt so spoiled and loved by her extra dose of attention Not to mention blessed by the stories she chose that have journeyed with me for 31 years and counting Striped Ice Cream is a really good read; especially for middle school aged children and younger I was raised on hand me downs and could relate to the youngest character portrayed in this book On one hand wishing for something new that had always been mine alone; but on the other hand looking through the bags of clothes received as a vast amount of priceless treasure I never felt as though hand me downs were given out of charity but out of care and love from friends of my family Share what you have and all will prosper Some won't be weighted down any and others will receive what they've never had before The family portrayed in Striped Ice Cream is very real and relateable They show a wide variety of ages amongst siblings who pull together to help their mom and each other They don't always get along but they do always seek to shoulder each other's burdens They share within their lot in life by pulling together and doing their best to make it betterThey're all waiting for their ship to come in; but not waiting for fate to bring it to them They're working towards their dreams and in process seeing things brought to fruitionA humble beginning a humble life can be filled with warmth joy and goodness Riches aren't everything Living in harmony working together within shared goals eliminates hardships and makes a way in a cold hard world You see through all around you and pick out the glory wrapped up in all of it too Perhaps that's where true wealth is found The ability to be happy within the smallest of moments and pleasures Where a meal of pork 'n beans hot dogs sliced up into baked beans is enough to make you smile say grace and truly be thankful for the abundant plate of food before youI've now passed this book onto my own 10 year old daughter A moment in time where life has come full circle for me and that of my family; be the keeper of books and gift them generously
