My Blog Entries...
Exclusive to Flatts-n-Family
'Personal Reflections' is like an old suitcase filled with memories, flashbacks and bits-n-pieces
Memories, recollections from the past, are real to our imagination.
Memories, like shadows, become distorted, faded and ultimately disappear.
Time to go private...
Time to gather family reflections...
Time to save memories for the next generation...
Time to move our personal thoughts from the publicity of Facebook...
Personal Reflections is restricted to family...
Personal Reflections requires a password for entry...
Family members are invited contribute to Personal Reflections.
