I have been young, and now am old...Psalm 37: 25
---------------------------------

This is an old picture that I had not seen in several years and honestly barely remember...Mother is in the rest home now and my sister and I have been sharing old pictures.. There was no date on the back of this picture of myself but I think I was either 6 or 7 years old when this school studio picture was taken.

Many of the older pictures were stored away and it was rather interesting to go
back in time...but a little sad also to be going through Mom's possessions ...
almost like a death but she is still alive and couldn't take very much with her
to the nursing home...My husband and I took back some keepsakes but many
household things will be sold at the Estate sale tomorrow and the next day...I mainly was interested in taking back photographs and this was one of them.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words...It is hard to believe I was ever that

    young. My mother used to fix my hair in rag curls. and by the next year I had my first short hair cut...Thank you Ann for your nomination:)
