A Very Old Picture

My mother’s family has a tradition of passing this picture down through the generations … to the oldest daughter of the family.  It used to belong to my (I hope I get this right) great-grandmother’s grandmother.  Which would make her my … great-great-great grandmother?  Anyway, it eventually got passed down to me, since my mom’s oldest sister doesn’t have any kids.

As I am not one to argue with primogeniture (when it comes my way), I became this picture’s foster momma, at least until somebody in the family has a baby girl.

Disclaimer:  I am not Catholic, nor do I speak French or Latin.  Therefore, I don’t really know what this says.  All the same, I am honored to host it until it gets passed on again.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. What a great picture and I know what it is to be entrusted with something as this. I too am the eldest daughter and have been entrusted with my great-grandmother’s wedding band, which is now about to go the third generation. How blessed we are! Again I thank you for sharing. God Bless, SR
