Meet Cyndi

Pointing at the younger woman with the familiar smile in the faded old photo…

My son exclaims “Hey Mom; she looks just like you!” And much to my surprise, he was right. Until then I was unaware of just how much I resembled my father’s mother. Finding this old photo album was like traveling back in time. I was getting to know the younger version of the grandmother I had adored growing up.

What an amazing discovery. I rescued the photo from that old album, framed it, and now it proudly resides on my fireplace mantle. Had it been a digital image it would have never survived for me to discover; which is why I firmly believe that prints matter, especially now in our instant gratification digital age.
