Memories In The Attic

1 Army_018

A trip up to the attic to clear out the cobwebs turns into a visit down memory lane. She can hear the whispers of forgotten ancestors in the letters and mementos she finds. This is not junk to be discarded; this is a personal history of those who have passed.

    Lots of depth and impact. Amazing how a picture can flood a mind with memories. This really made me think about Adam, but then it brought me a happy thought. The thought of when and how I met a Peep. ♡ I love my Peep. ♡

Talk to me! (please? )
