I've been going out on Ancestry.com and finding out great info about my family that I never knew. It can become addictive.

There is nothing more fun than having a chance to look at old family photos. Brings back a swarm of warm memories!!

Done. A little emotional, but done. :) Happy weekend, all!

We spent the weekend with my daughter and her family, so we got to look at many photos there. On the way home, we stopped by to visit my husband's mom in the nursing home, and she wanted to talk about pictures of the family!! On another note, I am in the process of digitalizing all the old beta-max and vhs tapes for the kids as a Christmas gift, so this is all big fun for me!!!

I wanted to take slides from my dad down to my daughter's for her to do, BUT dad said he didn't know where they were & I know that him & my mom know where they are, just being lazy to get em. I said I make CD's of them for ea. kid (6) of us & one for them & no go so that will be a fight some day as to who gets the projector & slides where my way we would of all been happy,

Think about putting your genealogy on CD's for the kids, too.

Where does the time go? My babies are grown men? when did that happen? lol
I have one of my favorite books next to my sons' photographs,
it's called "Love you forever"
The last paragraph in the book says it all,
whether our children are still with us...
or taken too soon:
"I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living
my baby...you'll always be"

You made me think of my kids- my son, 29, who got married last year, and my daughter who went out to California to seek her fortune after college and will be starting grad school out there in the fall. It seems only yesterday that they were babies, toddlers riding their bikes or teenagers playing video games on the couch.

I love that book too. It's an interesting twist who's speaking in that last paragraph.

Hope all is well and feeling positive today. Starting a pact with lovely Nicole today, looking forward to the next few days of pacing with her. Ahh, its a deja vu kinda challenge--look at an old photo album and relive favorite memories--I have so many Kodak moments, starting with my childhood, reliving the holidays, in college looking at the sorority step shows, one in particularly when we took the prize, and oh my looking at pics from the 70's the platform shoes, hot pants, bell bottom jeans, suede fringed vests, dashikies, etc--too funny, but wait some of that fashion, looks pretty similar today..lol! Now I'm looking at my daughters baby books..oooh so precious and indeed I am flooded with warmth and joy reliving past moments through pics; a true testimoyny of the research, that reliving positive memories can help to significantly improve psychological well-being.
MeYou Health suggests that taking just 20 minutes a day to think about your happiest experiences can reverse a bad mood, and sharing those memories with the people you love can help to bring you closer together. And naturally nostalgic people are more likely to have higher self-esteem and are less likely to suffer from depression through pics.
Take time to walk down memory lane today, either through pictures or those kodak moments stored in your heart and mind....

Photos are not big for me -- no albums to look at. I did think about some wonderful memories - but thinking about the past is not big for me.
