There are real positives to having a historian for a mother.

My mother saves everything–every picture, every letter ever written, every card.

My mother—-Sandra Henderson Thurlow—-the self-proclaimed “history lady of Martin County,” has written four books, inspired numerous people, saved a historic post office, and to this day sits every Wednesday at the Captain Sewall House in Indian Riverside Park to “share history,” with those who come to visit.

The photo above she recently pulled out of her files writing something like: “Jacqui, just found this looking though some old photo albums, perhaps you were destined to become a River Warrior…?” Love Mom.

I thought I’d share today since I am feeling like more of a River Warrior than ever.
