SS Blog Challenge #16 - Perfect Picture...

This week's challenge was from Joanie. Perfect timing for me!!

I had a conversation with my friend, Denise, last week and we were talking about our children and their relationship to their Grandpa's. Denise was talking about a special time her son, Garrett had with his Grandpa and how you could just see the love between them. I love pictures that capture that essence of who we are. It got me thinking about my own loved ones and how much I treasure those few photos that capture the magic of that person I love. So the challenge this week is to post a picture of someone you love. It can't be just any picture, it should be one of those pictures that you look at and you really see something about that person.Once you find that special picture, post it in your blog and tell us what it is that makes it special.This is not limited to children, or spouses. It is for anyone, even beloved pets.
This is a picture of my grandmother with my youngest child. She is the grandmother that I recently talked about in another entry. We were able to go up to visit her this last weekend when we had other business in the area.
This is the first time she's held my youngest. Her health has been very well, but I am still thankful to be able to have this picture. He took to her right away (of course) and I got many more pictures that weekend.
I love my grandmother's eyes. So blue! She is still beautiful, but you should have seen her back in the day. Wow! She has an unconditional love for everyone in the family. It's unbelievable. I will always think back to my time living with her. The many trips to Lebanon and Lancaster. The books, cooking, and more. She has worked at a little Diner/Bar in her neighborhood in Johnstown and retired on her 80th birthday and then moved out to California. Such a hard worker and servant - yet I never heard her complain. If I could be just a little bit like her, I would be very happy.
