Post Card Friendship Friday

There is always a reason why I keep something, I don't necessarily remember when I find it again, but it's obvious to me that my mother was much the same. She kept this "Easter Greeting" since 1945. In my last Friday post I mentioned how my Polish relatives never missed sending Easter Greetings, no matter what. Well it's more than true, this postcard was sent during time of war, from Monte Casino to Mexico, where my mother was in a Displaced Person of War Camp. My mother was married to my father at the time, but this card didn't come from him it was another male. Many of the men from the same village would be in the same unit, so everyone knew everyone. Sending greetings is a serious matter, you'll notice that the postcard was printed as an Easter greeting from the Unit, printed especially for the men to send off. Don't know who this man is, but good romance novel material I must say. Anyway Happy Friendship Friday

I love it! sometimes I would have loved to live in the day when my mother was younger to see for myself how she really was! was she kind, a jokester, a flirt, fun, sneaky, shy loud mouth, (that's the one I believe)I think I might surprise myself, somethings are better off left alone =) Hope you have a great Easter!
