Many ofContinue reading “Moms and Memory #elderlyissues #atozchallenge”

Lens of Yesterdays #poetry #memories

  “Who is that?” My daughter asks as she filters through 100 year old snapshots. “I never heard their story. I was only a child when I looked at these photos last.” “Which side of the family are they from?” She looks for any family likenesses. “They look like dad’s family.
