This is one of my favorite pictures-
That's my grandmother, one of the kindest, gentlest souls the world has ever known. She loved me as only a grandmother can. Standing there beside her is my youngest daughter, blue eyes shining, delicate arms draped round her great-grandmother as she snuggles in close.
Taken some seventeen years ago, but never losing it's power to make me feel so much. A ribbon of love stretching across the generations. The click of a shutter whisking me back to another place in time.
Back to little girls in holiday dresses, and the warm embrace of family.
