sentimental.....

it is just a sentimental journey.........walk through any antique photo album.......just listen to the voices of the ones before us........oh the stories they could tell..........









i am way to sentimental......my girls don't understand my tears sometimes....or.....why i save so much stuff..............................m' i know why........i connect with the past and can't seem to let it go..................................i love antique photo albums..............................just did an ebay search......seeing photos of someone's loved ones, forever gone...............off to some distant state.........staring at faces that could tell us so much......................i can't help but wonder, did no one care about the photos.....or were all relatives gone............................................i remember my great grand dad wampler telling my granny.........when i am gone...do not sell my pictures at auction...............................there were many things for sale that day, but granny kept her promise...............................................i have copied many of their pictures, hoping to preserve them for my future generations.................hoping they won't sell at auction.............and knowing that grammy was sentimental..........................................i am blessed!

Thanks for sharing , I too am the same way makes my heart cry to see endless pics of olde for sale in some random antique store, makes you wonder what their story really was. Thanks for giving homes to the ones you can and preserving your heritage. Have a great weekend .

I, too, am sentimental about things like that. When no one wanted a big box of of old photos of my distant relatives, I couldn't get my hands on them fast enough! Many have been framed and are around my home. I do not know who they are, but they were saved by my grandmother, so I know they are special people. I love owning them......
Have a happy weekend!
