These are old photos of my family. My parents, brothers and sisters. We look more like a clan than a family. LOL In this photo, Mom , George, Charles, Tom, Miles, Mark, Steve, and Dad. Me(Susie), Jeanie, Brenda, Pam , and Barbie.
Sister Brenda and brother Charles are missing from this photo. It was our baby brother Steve's graduation.
Big brother George is not in this photo. Yes, we had a big family. Lots of hard times and lots of good times. Our beautiful brother , Miles, is no longer with us. But he watches over us along with our parents. I sure miss them. I miss these old fun time get togethers too. We have a reunion around the 4th of July....when we can.
If you have parents, hug them today or give them a call. Or your siblings. Life is short, make it sweet. XO
Looks like a wonderful family, Susie. I still have all my siblings, but my mom and dad are gone. There are so many times that I wish they could come over and spend the evening with us. I really miss them. - Blessings.ReplyDelete
I think, just one more time, I would love to walk to mom and dad's from my house to see them. I lived a block and 1/2 away. My daughters and I would hurry to get our supper dishes done and then go to mommy's to visit before the girls all had to get their baths. xoxo,SusieDelete
Susie, you certainly do have a large family! I have only one sibling, a sister who is three years younger. My mother was an only child, and my dad had three brothers. There were only four cousins on dad's side, with only one who was near my sister's age. The others were several years older. xo NellieReplyDelete
Nellie, you did have much family to play with and get together with. But I think you probably loved your times together as much. When we would ask mom if friends could come play...she'd say no, you have your siblings to play with. LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
You're so right. Life is short. Make it count.ReplyDelete
Hi Brenda, Thanks for coming by. I enjoy your blog so much. xoxo,SusieDelete
OH! Today is my little sister's birthday, she will turn 48 but she looks maybe about 30!!ReplyDelete
God bless you, you are so sweet and pretty, then and now. Great family photos.
Thank you Kay, you are too kind. Of course I like that :):) Happy birthday to your sister. I wish I could be 48 again. LOL> Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
I know you miss your loved ones that have passed. I miss my parents very much. You have some great photos here of fun times and I know you treasure them.ReplyDelete
I'm taking time off from posting on my blog but I'll still be visiting/commenting. Take care.
I will miss your posting. Have fun time. xoxo,SusieDelete
These photos help keep the memories and the loved one close, they are treasures :)ReplyDelete
Cinnie, If I look at old photos too long I will get all weepy. But they are treasures. xoxo,SusieDelete
So fun to look back at old family photos.ReplyDelete
Just got back from visiting my mom today.
You're right, life is short and make time for those we love.
Mary Alice, So glad you can visit your mom. We have to count our blessings and hold on to our loved ones. xoxo,SusieDelete
This is such a great photo of all your family, Susie. There is so many of you! Thanks for the reminder to call my siblings today, Susie.ReplyDelete
Sheri, I like to tease that my 1st word ever was"share". Mom used to call me on that. Seems we never had anything that we didn't share with all the others.LOL. xoxo,SusieDelete
You're right about staying in touch. I did almost the same thing as I found some old photo albums and I posted them. Just about everybody but my cousin and I are gone.ReplyDelete
Boston Boy, Yes, do show your family photos. We love seeing pictures. For a big family, we are still blessed to have so many of us still healthy and hanging on. We have lost our aunts, uncles, lots of cousins. We have one aunt/uncle left....the uncle had a back way to go not so long ago. So I count my blessings. hope your weekend is great, xoxo,SusieDelete
