January 24th – The first write I did tonight …

I was looking tonight at pictures of Amanda when she was younger.  I needed pictures of her in the snow. So being the OCD me, I know that when I went digital, I had created folders form months, years, seasons, events, etc. It didn’t take me long to find the pictures I wanted but if anyone knows me, I get easily distracted.  So I was looking at some of her other pictures taken on special occasions, with friends, in the summer, etc.  I realized what a highly spirited, spunky and caring kid Amanda was.  Usually always smiling.  Making things.  Being goofy with others.  Just being a kid without any worries.  So when does or when did that change?  I think around the time hormones kicked in.  Boys entered the picture.  Cheer entered the picture.  I think the internet also happened.  I kind of liked in when the internet whirred so slow that it was hard to get a connection.  Amanda still had spirit and spunk but it was different.  Not like the innocence of years past.  Sad that we can’t bottle it up. Save it.  Then re-use it on our children.  No wonder Peter Pan didn’t grow up.  It was a challenging day for me.  I had to re-tell the days leading up to October 10th again.  Always hard.  I will post the collages I made of Amanda in the next night or so. Here are a couple of her as a spunky and spirited young kid.

Love to my Princess Snowflake xoxo
