If you have a Facebook account, you know there are a lot of stupid things posted there. Stuff like "Share this if your son/daughter if smart and beautiful".
Yeah, I'm waiting for "Share this if your son/daughter is ugly and stupid". Seriously?
And then there are the games. I will admit that I used to do some of the games. I'm over that now.
And then there all the "friends" I really don't know. What's up with that?
Well, I have gotten rather attached to some of those friends. For instance, there is one lady with whom I only connected because she graduated from North Kansas City High School, my alma mater... several years after my own graduation. She enjoys most of the same music I like. I have never met her, but I really like her.
Now, on the the subject, Throwback Thursday (TBT): On Thursdays, many of my Facebook friends post old pictures, sometimes from their childhoods, sometimes from early years of their marriages. I usually play along, because it's fun to go back through pictures I have scanned to my computer and be reminded that I'm no spring chicken any more.
Mother's Day is coming up, so today there were many pictures posted of mothers. I love every single one, and I love sharing some of my own. In fact, let me show you the picture I shared today.
So that's what you can expect on "TBT" on Facebook. Tonight that friend I've never met (but really like), the one who graduated from my alma mater, posted a picture of her mother that bowled me over. I was so impressed with it that I showed it to my husband. We agreed that she was a classic beauty. Colleen gave me permission to share this picture of her mother, haunting in its innocence.
A real American beauty. I love this picture.
