I started this page because the challenge this week at Journal 52 is Nostalgia. I mulled several ideas over in my head and then I saw this picture in an old Child Craft Encyclopedia. It reminded me of my one and only train trip. My grandmother wanted me to experience traveling by train before they were phased out in the area where we lived. We traveled from Memphis to New Orleans to Houston. I wish I could do it again.
I am really missing my grandmother right now. I think part of that might be because I'm watching my friend, Mo, spend so much time with her grandson. Logan will have so many wonderful memories of his grandmother because she spends so many quality hours with him. I would not give all the money in the world for the many, many hours I spend with my grandmother. This one's for you, Mamaw New Orleans.
