This photos lives on my nightstand.  This is my Aunt(ish) Nancy and it’s a photo of her I never saw until after she died.  It reminds me that people carry a whole host of stories and happenings with them and not to judge or be to quick to “sum” people up.  We all have stories to tell and I should be so lucky to hear them.

Not that I ever wrote her off but I didn’t ask who she was in her heart.  I like to think this might be how she saw herself, right up to the end.

    I never saw that photo before either. Wonderful picture of Nancy. She HAD some stories to tell. RW can share some with you, but your question that you posed is a good one. Do we really know who we are in our hearts? A good question to ponder.

    Sara, your great, great grandmother looks like a movie star! And your photo is in such good condition as well.
