Posting daily on this site (for NaBloPoMo) has focused my attention on some of the reasons I started this blog.
My topic for the month is family connections, which is one that is near and dear to me.
This site started out as Snow Connections, but then I merged my Blogger site called Snow Impressions with it.
It’s a bit of wordplay between my name and the weather condition of snow.
On my previous site, my header featured my two granddaughters playing in the snow a few years ago.
Today, my blog header captures one of those girls as she is today, and how she was a few years ago.
Don’t you love photos? They transport us back to special moments in our lives.
I have many albums, but lately I’ve really enjoyed uploading the photos to my computer and using them in blog posts. Or, as in the case of the current photo of Fiona above, this one I “grabbed” from her Facebook site.
Don’t you love that feature?
I’m thinking of Fiona and her cousin Aubrey—both girls were born in February, the same year—so they seem like “twins,” almost. Except that they are very different. In appearance and in many other ways. But they enjoy spending time together.
My thoughts take me to the snowy day years ago, as well as one summer almost three years ago when the two of them spent a week with me.
I look forward to many more family connections with them, and with my other grandkids.
What connections sustain you? What special moments stand out?
