Old Photographs

Old Photographs

What do you do with all those photographs that you take? Especially the ones of family and friends? Are they in an old shoe box? Or something similar?

Have you identified the people in each photo? After you have passed from this world, will anyone know Aunt Molly from Aunt Cecilia! Or Uncle Cedric from Uncle Harvey?

I was talking to a friend the other day, and he said how much he enjoyed my blog… especially because of all the photos I had used.

I have 14 albums, and from those, I scanned any with people, and they are now in my computer. It was a huge undertaking, but very well worth the time and energy that it took. I bought an attachment for my camera and photographed each one of my slides, so they are included in my files.

While looking for the picture that I used here today, I had many fond memories from times past that would have been lost if it were not for these priceless photos.

January would be a great time for you to start sorting photos that are in a box somewhere! Your family would be so grateful for a job well done.

Noni Grace Returns

Have you ever lost one of your children? One of your sons? How do you cope with such a loss?
.
I know that he is safe in God’s hands, but that doesn’t make the loss any easier. Everywhere I look I see reminders of Danny. Even this computer desk with its sliding board that holds the keyboard and mouse was made by him. My recipe holder, a clothes peg mounted on a stand, was the first thing he made for me, when he was 8 or 9 years old. I still use it!
.
He was a cabinet maker, a Mr. Fix-it, a mechanic, but so much more. He was an artist with a great talent. He was a son, a husband, a father and a grandfather… an all round great guy. I hope he is still with us, even though we can’t see him. He knows how much we all loved him. I wonder if he has a motorcycle up there in the sky?
.
There is a big hole in my heart, so I try to keep as busy as I can. Drawing and painting… making hasti-notes and greeting cards to sell in an upcoming bazaar. Wish you could all drop by.
.
I’ve missed the friends I made on here, so decided to post something once in a while. I hope you will be glad to see me back. Drop by for a cup of tea!
