Oh Dear Me...

I decided to enter a challenge over at CSI ( )...they just began this website and it's proving to be a lot of fun place..... so head on over!!

Each week's "Case" is based on a Color "Scheme"...along with some interesting "Clues" found in the  "Evidence" and "Testimony" files....what a trip!!.. hee hee

This particular Case lead me to seek out a much younger photo of myself... at 10....which is almost 50 years ago...( as I will be turning 60 this year) .and the journaling was to be about...advice.. or experiences in our journey...I found it to be a VERY emotional experience as I tried to write my journal...I kept looking at the face of this very sweet young girl.... and finding myself getting a wee bit teary..... okay... a LOT teary... hee hee..but then I found myself writing something truly heartfelt..and uplifting to me....

The journaling is hidden behind the older photo of myself... which you can see in one of the closeup photos....and it says:

 "Oh Little Girl...I wish I could reach back through time
and simply hold you and tell you... in  such a way that you
could truly hear me.... just how much I love you and no
matter who or what comes are amazing..I remember
all those times you were afraid and lonely..but I am SO
grateful for your strength and courage, that got us here today...
Thank You....."
