Those Grand Old Albums


Those Grand Old Albums

With my family all gathered around,
you must know in my heart there's a
smile. Especially, with the children's
laughter, it has brought back such
poignant memories. Photo albums
scattered across the floor, I watched
as with their little fingers they traced
the faces of those from time long ago.
I just had to snap a picture of them
to keep also for posterity! This was
something tangible they could touch and
sense a connection, not just a vision on
a screen that goes poof with the push of
a button. I know now these grand old
albums that I have kept ever so faithfully,
shall be passed down through the ages
and one day, become my legacy!
