From My Archives: February and March, 2006

It is interesting going back and reading this old stuff and seeing how much my family has changed over the years.  Back when I was in college, before the days of email, I used to write home weekly.  I asked my mom to save those letters for me and they are in a box in my garage.  Reading them sometimes brings back memories, and sometimes it doesn't.  I also used to keep a journal; some things made it into those that never made it into the letters to my mom.  I have those in a box in my garage too.  One day my kids will find them and see a picture of their mom before they knew her, back when she was a student at Mississippi University for Women.

Never looked like this when I was there

Anyway, looking at old posts on this blog brings back memories in much the same way that reading my college letters and journals does.  

What was I writing about back in 2006?  I went to Mass twice one weekwend and reflected on how different priests draw different lessons from the same readings.  I wrote about going to Confession.  I wish I could tell you that if I wrote a post like that today, it would be much different, and I guess it   would be because that priest has gone to his eternal home, and no one has fussed at me about infrequent confession since I quit going to him.  As we  approach the one year anniversary of my Dad's death, I've been thinking about him. In 2006 my Mom died.    I liked sharing links back then and I found a place that told how things were made.  Finally, the article I linked to isn't there anymore, but I wrote about reporting on AIDS.  

What were you writing about way back when?
