While going thru my photos earlier this week I came across these two. The people who have seen them, including my daughter, thought they are of the same baby. Nope! The top one is my daughter, the next one is my sister. And when I challenged my daughter to pick out her photo, she chose the wrong one! My sis will love that! But seriously, they really do look so much alike it would be easy for people who haven’t had the photos for over 50 years to make that booboo. I also noticed, in looking at a photo of my sister’s granddaughter, she also looks just like these two. The difference is only in the clothing in her case.
This is Jennifer, my baby that I will be with soon. At least that’s where I hope to go! I never got a chance to hold her on this level, so it’s exciting to think about finally seeing and holding her in heaven. I know, things are very different in the next plane, but I can find comfort in believing she will be a baby and that I’ll finally get to hold her. I have thought often about Jennifer taking my puppy, Max for long walks where he runs free. After all, dogs are people too, right?
I can feel my heart acting up now. Interesting that after being told 8 years ago I would need open heart surgery within a year I am only now feeling a few problems. MS is like that though. And MS is the culprit here, a condition I’ve lived with since I was 11. We didn’t know about it back then, and it’s still something that is considered an “orphan” disease. I could have left that one in an orphanage somewhere and been just as happy. I guess someone had to have it though, and it has made me who I am today — a complete train wrecked lifestyle and everything that goes with train wrecks.
Since I mentioned Max it occured to me that I should put his photo on here. Lucky for me he was never spoiled. And if you believe that, I have this blue bridge for sale. It spans the Ohio River — the bridge, not Max. It really is a nice bridge, a bit on the narrow side, but the blue blends well with the sky — provided the sun is out and not the clouds!
I’m sitting on a very uncomfortable lump of something right now, so that just seems like a good point to end this one. Today has been okay so far, but I just got up so things haven’t had a chance to get very hairy yet. Love all y’all.
