TIme Capsule Found

As we were boxing today, we ran across a time capsule that belonged to one of my daughters.  She was excited to open it.  It's from the year 2005 - so it's 6 years old.  Included in the capsule was this picture!  We had won something in our apartment complex at the time of this picture and we went to claim it.

Just thought I'd post this real quick because I was a little shocked to see this picture.  Seems like yesterday yet a lifetime ago!  I should blow it up and put it on my fridge to help me remember that I'm NEVER TO GO BACK!  

Maybe we should make a new time capsule! :)

What a wonderfully poignant reminder of how far you've come. I only found you a short time ago, but I am so glad that I did. You are such an encouragement to me!

Lori said...

WOW! I don't think I would have recognized you. It is a great confirmation of how far you've come.

You really put time and effort in perspective, Margene. I just have to say again that your blog title is one of my all-time faves!

If you make a new capsule, let us in on it!

Wow! That's so awesome that you found that. Yeah, sometimes I look back at pictures of myself pre-loss and...Just wow. It's hard to believe I ever looked like that. It's also hard to believe that I don't still look like that. Very confusing mix of emotions.

My oh My,what a difference! If I look very closely...at the center of your face...I can see a resemblance to you now. But that's just it, a resemblance, not you.

And, YAY! for packing being underway! :D

My friend in New York is making me a time line, she's known me for 10 years and said I went from chunky to chubby to fat to me now. And no she's not being mean, we have always talked frankly. I can't wait to see it because I never kept old photo's of me.
A time capsule sounds awesome, such a great idea.
Take care and have a blessed weekend.
