Family...Ruth becoming Lonely

I don't wish them any harm of course, but it would be okay if they didn't visit to often, mostly never.
my other cousins are really nice and we have good times together. Aunt Margaret has neglected to teach that some things are very " rude."




Although everyone lives in different towns and even states...they get together for special times. More family picture to paste in the picture book/Journal. Della Mae makes me paste from flour and water. Sometimes I get to use the store bought paste.
When Ruth decided to share her life in the tablet she had allot of help from the picture box and Nurse Nancy. I think Ruth felt the need to be known, to have a life force that was real. She started to believe that she was fading away, out of site, out of mind. Father always said, 'Children can be see, but not heard. Ruth was smart and that made her isolation much harder. Her mind was clear and her abandonment was real to her as time went by. Ruth was lonely.

I'm so glad you stopped in for a visit! What an interesting idea to collage your story of Ruth. I'll have to stop back over and scroll down to read it in its entirety.
