It is amazing how fast time flies. And especially after everything I have been through in my life, some days I find it hard to believe I am still here, living in this crazy world. I was talking to mother the other day and we reminisced about life. We were going through old pictures including baby pictures of me.
I found this photo of me and wanted to share this picture for Throwback Thursday, as I originally shared this with my amazing boyfriend Sumit. This was taken in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania back in the early-to-mid 80's. I want to say maybe 1985? I will have to get validation from my mother, as she would know more so than me. Although the photograph originally has color, I made it black and white as I think it makes more vintage looking.
My grandfather in the picture is deceased and died several years after from lung cancer. From what I remember, he was a wonderful grandfather. He is my mother's father. My grandmother who is also in the photo is deceased and died back in the early 2000's. She was my mother's mom. She was also my best friend, so I really took her death hard.
It is truly astounding the memory that comes to life when you look at one simple photograph. In this case, although my memories are somewhat vague when looking at this one, I remember this day and find myself reminded that life only continues.
