Another not so wordless Wednesday...
Backdrop - Grandparent's house
from left to right - Dad, Sister, Mom, Brother, ME
Note - velcro high top Reeboks (also had them in royal blue!), stirrup pants with long rockin' print shirt, multiple watches (Swatch Watch anyone?!); and check out my Mom's feet....red stockings (it was Christmas you know) and DUCK SHOES - it must have been raining. I love it!
My parents were younger than I am now in this pic. Amazing.
I'm feeling a little nostalgic and emotional today. Having almost lost my Dad last year to cancer, and having experienced the death of his step-mother, mother and most recently, his father (all to cancer) - all within the past 2 years...it just makes me really take a look and realize how fast time goes by, how quickly it can change, and how precious it is.
Don't waste time on crap that doesn't matter.
Use the fine china.
Wear your best perfume.
Buy flowers for no reason at all.
Tell those important to you how much you love them.
because in the end, whenever that may be, someone is going to be going through your attic, cleaning out your belongings...and you want them to know "wow, they had a good life"
