You Got Me To Thinking

     On February 5, 2011 a very dear friend, Kym Nobles Ragan, came for a visit at my little consignment shop. We chatted for a good long while and then our conversation turned to my father and my brother. For whatever reason, I had it all confused. I thought that my brother, Paul, was my uncle. Once she left the store, I got on my phone and started looking at friends on Facebook.  I found that she was friends with this Paul Tidwell and I was friends with Jessica Vinson who was also friends with Paul but not Kym. Well, needless to say, my curiosity got the best of me.

The First Desire

     One day when I was dusting, I picked up a picture of my little sister and I in a little wading pool in my Maw-Maw's backyard.  I can't tell you what moved me to remove the back off of that frame and see what was behind that picture. But nonetheless, I removed the back and there was this picture of me sitting in a man's lap, a man of whom I had never seen before.  I flipped it over to find it said "Anne and Jesse". I didn't know anything about my father other than his name was Jesse Lee Tidwell, so I assumed this man must be my father.
