Well, my story started on March 2, 1970 in Ontario, Canada.
I am a daughter, sister, wife, mom, artist, writer, designer, explorer, survivor ..... and anything else I feel like doing during any particular day!
My Mum's story ended on March 2, three years ago. Life has been a series of ups and down, laughter and tears...and SO many blessings....some so obvious that I trip over them and some blessings so hidden that I don't see them until years after the fact. Life is AWESOME! Life is hard,but amazing. We all have personal roads that we have to travel upon that twist and turn, go up and down. However, we journey on....
I LOVE family history! I used to always ask my parents questions about their childhood and how it was when we're growing up. We always sat around the kitchen table and would laugh, giggle and sometimes cry, as we told family stories. These are some of my favourite memories.
My dad was the photographer in the family. He was always taking pictures of us when I was growing up. I am SO glad that he did. I guess that is where I got my 'photodiction': or addiction of constantly taking pictures. One day my children will grateful for this, just like I am grateful for my dads habit! I have found so many photos that my dad took through the years and from looking at those pictures I can see how my dad 'saw' the world! It is really cool!
My mother loved to write. After she passed away, I found so many of journals of hers that I didn't even know that she had kept. It is wonderful to read her story. It is wonderful to learn another side of her.
