I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends...

Yesterday, my old friend Karin sent me these pictures from our teen years and I was thrilled because I only have about five pictures from that time and always wanted to show my daughters a view of my past! My friends were a real lifeline to me back then, since my mom had many issues that made my home life stressful. I can't help but believe that it was "Divine Providence" which led me to these particular people because they filled my days with fun, laughs,and a sense of security that my home didn't supply. Their parents and siblings were nice to me too and I went along with some for a few family style vacations. And I believe God used that time to show me that He was real and that He loved me and was looking out for me even though, at that time I had doubts.
Don't these pictures make you think of "The Wonder Years"? (one of my all time favorite shows!)
These were taken around 1973!! Yep, I'm ancient!!


  1. Yep, Wonder Years! I love old pictures, but unfortunately I always hated being in them so I don't have any of me and my friends.

  2. I love these pictures!! Love the styles everyone is wearing!

  3. Your pictures brought back many memories...some good and some not so good! LOL! How time flies by! Thanks for sharing.
