A gift


Last Spring I sat with my mom on the sofa of the temple house where she lived for three years, pouring through a book of old pictures of her.  She patiently explained each photograph, and answered questions about events and general timelines surrounding her youth.  It was a gift to be given a glimpse into her young life--I was hungry for more.  Today at Segullah, I've shared a piece of what I gleaned from that afternoon together.  In the spirit of giving, I share it with you.
