I am away on a work trip in Baltimore. Last night my Mother forwarded me some found photos of some of my family. I had never seen these photos before. When someone has died you think you will never see another moment of them. Ever. All you have of a person are the life memories of shared experiences and the tactile memories from photographs.

It was utterly surreal to see these new photos of Millie. From the 60’s. Looking just like, well, Millie. Except younger, a bit softer. You think you have seen every look a person can have. And then you see another. And suddenly you see your own Mother has that EXACT look. EXACTLY.


{There will be no new post for the In Times Like These series today as I did not have time to get one up. But please do go back and see if you have read all of the amazing guest posts.}
