Something about this picture


I see the little girl face hiding right there in plain sight in the grown up face with the black eyeliner, the 20-year-old concentration. Gosh, I miss this girl.


And here's another snap, this one from back in the day. Just because. (I won't go into it because in the mood I'm in, I might cry. Suffice it to say, it all goes way too fast.)

    1. You're right of course. I heard someone say the other night, "Why do we waste time wishing life to be other than it is?" I was so struck by it. My children are grown but there is such wonder in who they are now, too. So yes. Much to enjoy.

  6. I think most parents whose youngest kids are in college would agree with you! I do see the girl in there, though -- she's still with you. :)

    1. Steve, it's so odd how i see all stages of my children's faces in their current face.

  7. Oh Angella, you made me cry a little bit. I remember those long long hours I would sit up at night breastfeeding and yawning and looking down on that tiny face, trying to imagine what she may look like in 5, 10, 15 years. Quite unable to imagine that the night and this feed may ever come to an end.
