Gerhardt and I have taken on the Herculean task of organizing our pictures and slides - a tower of photo albums and a skyscraper of boxes of slides. Yikes!
But, when so many of us are back in lock down as the stinking COVID-19 continues to rampage, this is a good time for such a chore. I must say, it's fun looking at all those pictures, watching our life unfold with visuals of people, places and events that have brought us to where we are today. So much fun.
And one of the side benefits? It reminds us that life isn't all bad. We've had our share of struggles and heartaches. We've had our dark times and our tests. But we've also had good times with good friends. We have family that we love. We have been blessed.
Maybe, if you're feeling a little in the dumps, you might like to dig out some of those old photo albums and scrapbooks, too. Like George Bailey (and Sheila) you might come to realize that you've really had a wonderful life. :)
