15 days into thankful...

I came home today to find 2 packages waiting for me... mysterious.
"I have not ordered anything recently"... I think as I kick off my shoes.
Then I see that all to familiar handwriting... my daddy. It cant be a birthday present... he already sent that. So what oh what is in those boxes!

I got everyone settled and sat myself on the couch to tear into those mystery packages!

The minute the seal was broken and I peared inside those boxes the tears began to fall. Tears of joy? yes. Of sadness? yes. Gratefulness? YES.

My grandmas photo albums...

Pages and pages of history... from her days as a girl on the farm.

To her life in the big city!

And so many more!
Just through the pics I see so much of me.
And boy was my dad a looker! ;)

So, today... I am thankful for my history. ALL of it, on both sides. The good, the bad, and the ugly.

Thank you Daddy for the best gift ever and for my history.

I love you all...
Be good to each other.
♥ Tawny
