Memory Lane by Ruby
June 6, 2021 by ElderChicks
I’m 71, widowed since May 2017, I have a tremendous amount of photos in a large bin and various photo albums. I felt that no one was interested for a while besides myself, until I was on a family video call and the subject of pictures came up and my children and grands expressed an interest in them. I had and still shrink from going thru them because it becomes painful for me when I go down memory lane.
I have decided to do the task of organizing into family groups and gift them to them, labeling with correct year and a comment or two if I can remember so that they can put into their own family albums. I used to think I would need to keep copies of each photo I gave away, but no longer do I feel that way, the memories are enough for me now.
Pictures ones of my husband and myself, I’m not sure exactly what to do with them but will work it out going alon
I know that memories are etched in our minds and our hearts, and everyday walking this pathway now alone I am becoming convinced that we will take them with us wherever our next destination is in some manner.
Peace and blessings to all of us in this Journey of Life!
