Hidden Treasures

I was super excited about the surprise Mrs. Lambchop had for us today. She had gotten a hold of a ton of old photos of my family which included a whopping 150 photos of me as a baby and a young child.

What an incredible gift these are. As a young child I would look our few family albums over and over remembering through mom and dad the times of our childhood.

After the first few years those memories have been etched into my brain.

These new photos however will bring forward new little mirrors into my past.

My parents were young parents when I was born, my mom was 20 and my dad only 25, they were practically babies themselves. The camera they had was a sad 110 pocket camera; needless to say the photos that they were able to take were not the best.

These new photos however were from a MUCH better camera and a better quality than many of the photos we have.

It makes me wonder how many photos people take of you that you never see.

It's amazing how much you look like YOU in these photos. Your spirit is there in your eyes. Remember when kids used to be happy playing with a coffee can and a measuring cup... and some rocks?

I bawled because there were pictures of Jonpaul I'd never seen before and it broke my heart that no one ever shared them with me before. Sad.
