Maybe, they feel the same way. How can I not have compassion for someone who suffers as I have suffered. Let’s all turn and look at the person we once sought revenge upon -and see the pain in their eyes.

Washington D.C. Trip

I am back from Washington D.C.  My daughters school takes a trip every two years.  Four days of riding a bus, and 6 to 10 miles of walking per day.  By the last day, my feet were swollen clear up into my calves.  Painful! I have so many words and pictures to share, but it will take me a few days -as I need to restore my body to its normal state of relaxation. Can’t hardly wait to tell you about this adventure.

Do any of you know what a penny card is?  It is a postcard that cost one cent.  I have many old penny cards that I found in the run-down house my grandmother grew up in.  I couldn’t help myself.  I had to share some of my memories of an era that is nearly lost.  A time, both memorable and cherished in the life of a girl who hungered to live in the years of old.
