If you look on the sidebar..this little seven year old was just past toddling stage..she is the one holding the necklace and studying it in my daughter, Mary's, powder room. Her Auntie Natalia, who is her mother's sister, was getting married to her daddy's first cousin. Yep..two first cousins married sisters. Can you follow that?
Emily is changing..
yes...changing so fast. I hope I get to see her as a grown woman..but it's unlikely.
My great grandmother never got to see me past this age. I remember it well, that last time I saw my great grandmother. I was just five.
Columbian and Irish are a great mix, aren't they? :)
Thanks so much for stopping by, what a great feeling to know I wasn't forgotten.
I need to take pictures I know. I mean, I cannot keep showing you the grandchildren and greats..but I admit it would give me lots to post about and bore everyone to tears!
I just don't want to drift to far again..I'm hanging on.
...that silver thread..
I had a dream once. I dreamed that I drifted up into the sky..I could feel the breeze..see for great distances..and I kept drifting higher and higher, I wanted to keep going farther and farther but
I was teathered to the earth by a silver thread..and it kept me from drifting away...and then I remembered.
... my babies, and my beloved and my friends..and I allowed myself to slowly float back to earth. I was needed. It kept me from cutting that silver thread.
Maybe it was to see my great grandchildren...maybe?
