100 Days Project

Marie: And yet another story!

It seems to be a trait of the elderly to tell stories and often repeat the same stories. As our family has a major Reunion in February 2015 I will tell a family story each day and NOT repeat it for 100 days. I will use christian names from our earlier generations as pseudonyms.

When Ailsa and I were challenging each other over the care of our baby sister Erin, Mum came to a delightful conclusion.  Ailsa could be in charge of THIS baby, and I could have the NEXT Baby and so on. I was content and Ailsa was MORE content.  Time passed, the next baby arrived, and at last I got my chance to care for her, and Sarah and I have retained this very precious bond  to this day.  By the time young Lily arrived, our Ailsa had passed on to teen-age years.  Luckily for me she had  more important things to occupy her than little babies, so I got to care for Lily as well!  This secured our bond for life also, and many times I  have quietly thanked  Mum for giving me these very special relationships with my younger sisters.

86) My best story!
