The Power of Old Photographs

My brother recently began scanning a lot of his old photographs and he sent this one to me. It stirred some amazing memories because I saw this picture only once before, years ago. It was taken sometime in the mid to late 1990s and shows my husband Peter (in red), me (in white), my son Brian (in plaid), and my brother Paul. All the men in my life (at the time) and me in the midst of them. And it is particularly poignant because Peter and I are holding hands!  It is amazing to think that this picture is only about 20 years old and yet seems like it happened in another lifetime. What power old photographs can have!
