BULLIES come in all ages

Surround yourself with positive people,
energy, and situations;
always avoid negativity.


Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So, love the people who treat you right.

Forgive, and then forget about the ones who don't.

Sunday is for Family

Grandpa and Grandma
Savannah, GA
~Dec. 1953~

What my grandparents didn't know at the time this picture was taken, is that my parents and I (7 months old) were flying home from Guam (my birthplace) to surprise them for Christmas. They thought they would be spending Christmas without seeing their first grandchild!

Happy Trails,

Hi Kit! Been so busy, just catching up with your last few posts. AMEN to no puppies or dogs as a Christmas gift. If people want a dog it is up to them to be responsible, etc. on their own initiative.

Lovely picture of your grandparents at Christmas. They look so relaxed. xoxo

In going through my dad's things, my sister and I ran across hundred of slides. We sifted through them and got the ones with family in them, precious memories! I have enjoyed your pictures from the past so much and cant wait to share mine with my readers, too. I would have loved to have seen the look on your grandparents' faces when they saw you!
