I see you

I was chatting to a senior and she told me there comes a time in your life that you become invisible.

 Suddenly your not there and people don’t see you, maybe because the blinkers have been taken off my eyes but I asked how? But I can see you?

 She told me sometimes she could be physically there but ignored, people don’t think she is anyone special just a little old lady.

 Then pointed at me and said one day it could be you.

 I thought this was really sad, this was a lady that had achieved so much she had taught and helped pave the way for generations to succeed in life.

 This was a lady who had a wicked sense of humor and so much still to share.

 I am glad that I had the ability to get to know her and see beyond the old lady mask.

 Sometimes we forget the oldies lived a life where they were young, they loved, they taught, they travelled and most of all they gained knowledge, which should be shared.

 Maybe my dream is big but I want to make every senior feel like a star and make younger generations see.

 Just like I have. 

 

This post is dedicated to my Grandmas who I saw, loved and learnt from.

So who passed on the short gene?…. Delving into the past with the family history club.

The idea of discovering traits my ancestors possessed is what lured me to the local family history club.

Even though I could easily jump on an ancestor finding website, I wanted to learn from the experts at Frankston City Library.

Sometimes working within a group can spark ideas like delving into shipping records, phone books, census details and haunting Melbourne City Library for further information.

One participant had been searching for his relatives for eight years, it was amazing the amount of time he spent each week delving into records.

I was impressed that he found a long lost relative who lived a few suburbs away in Moorabbin.

Surprisingly it was easy to find records in England, I was on a mission to find out about my Grandma Cissy Wilkinson who plays a starring role in Golden Days Images.

Within minutes on ancestor.com.au I had found a marriage certificate!

It was really handy to have all these records at the tip of my fingertips and I think I may return to find out further details!

So here is the plug…….
