Unwritten StoriesRecently, I've been going through my childhood photos that my Mother had kept through the years. I want to make sure they are safe in case anything should happen to the original album. Now, they are on my computer and will be uploaded to the internet so I can retrieve them if I need to.
Of course, doing this has given me cause to ponder my childhood, my family.... my life. I think it is easy for me to get so caught up in my adult trials that I forget I even had a childhood. I've so enjoyed looking through these pictures, remembering good times, thinking of cherished loved ones who are now gone from this Earth. I'm feeling very blessed. I've been going through some very sore trials of late, so it is like a soothing balm to think upon better times. I realize that I had a wonderful childhood with loving parents. NOBODY could ever have better parents than I had. I was so protected and sheltered by them. I grew up feeling safe and secure and completely loved.
I've posted a video on this blog with some of these pictures from my youth, along with a song by Hilary Weeks that expresses my feelings so well. There are many stories that could have been written in my youth, but were not. For that I am thankful.
