Share Those Family Photos and Stories
March 17, 2013
One day last week, my mother got a surprise in the mail. She received a large envelope of pictures from one of her cousins who lives in Springfield that we had not heard from in years.
Many of these pictures once belonged to my great-grandmother and featured my grandparents, my mother, and her sister as children. My mother loved going through all the pictures – so many memories. But most of all, she was thrilled to hear from her cousin. Sharing family photos and stories is a great way to reconnect with family that you don’t see often.
