  1. What a wonderful opportunity you had and how good it is that you were able to appreciate it, at least on a child's level, at that time. Grandmothers should instruct their grandchildren to write down the stories so they are not forgotten! Because children can't imagine forgetting what they were told, nor can they imagine that this family history will be something that they will treasure when they are older. Walking a tightrope? Wow!
    Thanks for that, +Lynn David Newton

  2. Took me a long time to get around to this, but I just did it. Family history stories can be quite interesting. I had the experience of spending up to a couple of weeks at a time visiting with my grandmother, my father's mother, and although I also had a relationship with my mother's parents, it was much different. My Grandpa Newton died when I was still quite young, and I remember visiting him on only one occasion. So my Grandma Newton was a widow for quite a number of years. She was an extremely conservative woman, stern in some respects, but extremely loving and kind in others, and it happens that on those two or three or four occasions I had opportunity to be with her (also my father's unmarried older sister). When I was youn enough, I even slept in my Grandma's bed. And during those times I would sit and play dominoes by the hour with Grandma, and she would tell me stories of growing up and of her brothers. These were opportunities my three younger brothers never had. And today I wish I had realized at the time what an extraordinary privilege and experience I was having and that I had written down more of what she said. I remember that one of my great-uncles could walk a tightrope, but not a whole lot more. What I remember most of all is getting to know my grandmother herself.

  3. Such a poignant family story and universal theme relating to family histories and our individual remembrances. Your voice gives such a personal touch, +Ellie Kennard …I could actually envision the needlepoint art hanging on the walls. Wonderfully read, and I also very much enjoyed all of the photos that gave further depth to your story. Thank you.
