When at first I looked at the pile of photos it reminded me of the way I shuffle cards. Stack them up all neat like...split the deck...bend and shuffle...then do the waterfall...it's a showing off thingy. But instead of the interlocked cards riffling neatly back into one deck again, they shoot out of my hands and spray all over the table, floor...basically every where. Needless to say, I never get to be 'The Dealer'.
However, amongst the spray of photos, there is some semblance of my organizing skills...the Color Coded File Folders behind the randomly filed and clipped mail envelopes, photos and notes. Two things struck me about THIS unplanned random photo. First the Pink Tab file..Geneology Laws & Quotes. which I pulled and found the title for this post...Someday I'll Be An Ancestor.
Secondly, the '4th Generation' file and the 'Three Generations' pictured in front of the file. Look closely in the right corner and you will see Generation #1...my Dad on Dan (AtoZ Letter D post...HERE). The 2nd Generation in my Dad's line is my 1st grade school picture (AtoZ Letter A post...HERE). For the 3rd Generation, you have to really look closely at the clipped picture in the center...it's my nephew...my Sister's oldest son.
He is getting married next month!
My Sister's future grandchild...4th Generation..will fulfill my prophecy of...
Someday I'll Be An Ancestor.
