Hi you all and welcome back to another blog post today. Day 26 of LOAD 514, the theme is Back to the Future and the prompt: If I knew then....Don't we all think about this once in awhile if I only knew now I would have done this then. This is my take on the layout, I'm also taking a sketch class at Big Picture Classes and this was lesson 2 of that class for the layout:
If I only knew what I know now, I would have asked more questions. I got into genealogy a few years ago and I did because I was asked a question that I couldn't answer, why because I didn't know. Wish I had known how precious photos would be to me now, I would have taken better care of them. I wish I would have paid better attention to the stories Mom told during the nights we would have slide shows. I wish I had asked my questions to my Gram about her life as a child, about her marriage to my Grandfather I never knew. Or my Pap about what it what was like for him in World War I (he's not pictured). I wish I had asked Dad about his mother that passed away when he was so young, one we knew nothing of till he found out he had another sister.
But I tell the stories that I can now, for my kids so they aren't asking, I wish I had.....
Thanks for stopping by today and seeing what I'm doing in my little corner of the world
