A year ago I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism which can in some cases, such as mine, affect your memory. And as much as I hate to admit it, I’m getting older and with that comes memory loss. I have to have post it notes and lists everywhere so I don’t forget things. That’s what triggered this blog – I wanted to record some of my personal memories as well as make a tribute to the past and the women who worked hard to provide a loving and caring home for their families by blogging about different eras, challenges, and experiences of keeping a home .
My oldest daughter and I were walking the other night and I, of course, had my camera with me and kept taking pictures of my Granddaughter. My daughter asked why I brought my camera with me everywhere I go – something I never really used to do unless we were on vacation. I told her that it was because with my thyroid problems and forgetfulness it was the best way for me to remember things – taking photos and blogging about them which includes the date and information.
Then tonight when I was sitting in our gazebo with my youngest daughter, I was reading a magazine called Country from Reiman Publications, and it had wonderful photos of mountains that reminded me of The Canadian Rockies and something my youngest said on our drive through them – she was only 9 and was in awe of the mountains as we drove higher and higher into the clouds when she peeped from the back seat of the van - “Who made them?” We asked what she was talking about and she said “ the mountains”. We simply replied “God”. She simply said “cool!”
That’s something I never want to forget :)
