The Way We Were....


I was given a bag full of photos to look at the other day from my father who is currently cleaning out and passing on items in his possession. I opened the bag and poured through what must have been over 100 photos, many of which I had in triples already in my house ( particularly wedding ones). As my eyes rested on some more than others I began to think of the past. I saw people who were married who no longer were, people who were once healthy who are now ill or have passed on. I saw images of myself and recalled the feelings of the past with events I remembered fondly as well as the ones where I have made mistakes and in which mistakes were made to me. The past is truly in the past as they say because these events can not be undone. As my husband always says to me: Learn from it and move on. While moving on for some may be easy, I find it to be one of the most difficult things to have to do. Still, living in the moment one moment at a time is an honorable goal and hopefully one I can achieve someday. Wishing you all the best in your moments always and thank you to everyone who replies to my ramblings. It makes my day! Stay tuned because tomorrow will be the start of a new drawing for a piece of art!!!

What always upsets me is seeing photos of my relatives that are cousins and cousins of cousins and forget their names! Or seeing and trying to remember who is who in the old B&W's

Tammy,

I agree that sometimes it's hard to move on, but it's so worth the effort! You can never change the past, so holding onto grudges and hurts is like carrying a huge load of bricks around all the time. Anyway, I hope that you do succeed each day in living in the present:))) This photo is so sweet!

You sound so much like me Tammy - I too am trying to live in the moment and let the past be in the past. Yet with a love for vintage I believe we may be trying also to find meaning and positives from our ancestors. That is worth something too.

Wonderful picture. Is it of you?

Ah. I saw now the title for the picture when I went to enlarge it. Beautiful you. I need to search for some current photos of you. Perhaps you can point me in the right direction.
