Once I get started looking at old photos...I had better plan on going down memory lane for a couple of hours.One picture leads to another and another story. Joe and I often get our albums out and sit at the table and tell each other our stories.
I wonder if memories will be the same without those albums...what with digital photography...saving pics on the computer etc.How can you sit down with a computer and have the same feelings as turning the page?

Balisha, I have the same thoughts.
In my upstairs close there are box after box, many albums and pictures
(graduation and family) and seems at this time none of children want.
So I am the keeper of memories.
I can hardly go through these pictures with becoming emotional.
Some so happy and then my life started over after 22 years of marriage. All is fine but just a lot of memories....
Thank you always for your special friendship.

I see several errors in my sharing
but will not try and correct as most would know what I mean.
My Jamie tells me to edit. I just type and post :)

My mother often said that a child's birthday is also a mother's birth day, so "Happy Birth Day"! (Coincidentally, today is my birthday too.)

My youngest daughter was also premature, weighing in at 3 lb. 14oz. In those days mothers didn't get to hold their babies as soon as now, so I had never held her until she was almost three weeks old. That's when I realized how tiny she was.

I also have the feelings shared by you and Balisha about pictures on the computer. Chances are many will never be looked at again.
