I've studied photos to find hints and clues and posted some of those thoughts on this blog. Through this I was found by two cousins on my paternal side. One I was in touch with many years ago but we got lost in our own lives.
They both made some comments on past posts here and here.
There's been a basket of papers on the dryer for months and months. I'd see it and decide to come back to it later.
Sunday I "had" to go through the basket. It was stuff I'd brought back home from my sister's after she passed away. At least that is what makes sense, I really don't remember these things. I always feel like somebody is directing these meetings or findings; the serendipity of life. These pictures were mixed in with old Christmas cards and other special stuff. Some of it my own.
These are all of my sister growing up in the late 1940s. I have another copy of the one with Mother and the tiny baby. I always thought it was me. Now I'm not so sure.
As I studied each picture I'd run into the other room to show my husband a special treasure.
My favorite is this one of my mom, very pregnant with ME.
Betty younger and still looks like Do Do.
