Yesterday, April Fools Day, Mother Nature delivered her own surprise. Eighteen inches of fresh heave wet snow fell to let us know it isn’t springtime yet. This is the second 18 inch fall in a week this spring. We have had more snow this spring than we did all winter! Thanks Mother Nature. 🙂

Three Broken Hearts

Three Broken Hearts
Old Burying Point

This monochrome photo shows an ancient headstone at the Old Burying Point in Salem, Massachusetts, the city’s oldest cemetery. The two hearts shown are the infant children of Thomas and Mary Hould. Both children, Thomas and Elizabeth, perished in the month of August and both were 16 months old. Their deaths are separated by just three years. Living in the wilderness of eastern Massachusetts Colony in the late 1600’s must have been a difficult life. This is truly a heart breaking tale.
But there is more to this heartbreak than meets the eye. If you look carefully there is what would have been a third heart just to the left of Thomas Jr’s heart. The stone over the years has broken and a piece has gone missing. There must have been a third child lost to Thomas and Mary as they tried to make a living and life on the harsh land.
