Y is for Yesteryear

I thought about going with yesterday as opposed to yesteryear, because yesterday I was here-

Since I'm blogging about motherhood, yesteryear it is.
Yesteryear I was here... a world where little girls wore pink piglet shirts and pony tails in their hair.

Where they raced the surf-

and shook hands with Santa.

Their eyes were full of wonder-

...because the world was very big and they were very small.

In yesteryear little girls sat side by each on a warm summer day-

They wrestled fish from a hook-

...and words onto a page.

It was that magical place where a little girl shared the secret of life sittin' on a rock.   

In yesteryear little girls dreamed of castles and queens and a great big tomorrow.

"Write in your heart that every day is the best day of the year."
Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. Your pictures bring back so many memories of my little girls.

  2. Such sweet pictures! Looks like your little "vacay" was just what you needed!

  3. I do like where you were at yesterday but nothing is as important as yesteryear with our children. Sweet post Joyce and I love the photos.

  4. Great post AGAIN about your girls. The memories are priceless.

  5. It's great to look back on the lovely, precious moments knowing we did our best. You have a great family.

  6. What a beautiful tribute to your girls.

  7. From the looks of your pictures, it's hard to choose which time was best-yesterday or yesteryear! I'm guessing it was yesteryear :)

  8. Beautiful. I really hope that your daughters read your blog to see all the things you say about them.

  9. I have enjoyed your posts! Wiped tears a few times, nothing like memories. I think you should copy your posts and make each of your girls a booklet sharing your thoughts. It would be something special for them to pass down to their kids. Love these!
    until next time... nel
