Not So Very Long Ago…

The 80's

The 80's

I walked downstairs today to find my mom cleaning out the collect-all- closet.  I am sure every house has one.  It holds a few coats that nobody wears, gift bags of every shape and size, and anything in a frame that is not currently adorning our walls.

I was an only child for ten years which means there were lots of pictures of me.  There are enough enlargements of my face to create my own shrine.  Perhaps I will one day.  🙂

Time goes by so quickly.  I remember when my mom was taking some of the pictures.  It seems like yesterday, but when I look in the mirror, I realize it was a little longer than that.  Nearly twenty years longer.

To be honest, I’m not quite where I expected to be right now.  But I trust the heart of my Heavenly Father even when I cannot see His hand.  And if I ever am tempted to forget some of my former years, they will always be well-documented in my shrine.
