I WAS THINKING…
about a young teenage girl who was standing in front of me in the grocery store line. She looked so much like a lady I used to work with. I just had to ask. Sure enough, she was Stella’s granddaughter. It made me think about how much family members look alike. It even seems to continue for generations. And have you ever looked through old pictures and wasn’t sure who was who because they looked alike. Actually, one time I looked in the mirror and for a second, I thought I saw my sister. That was a good thing…she’s pretty.
