|I love this picture! My grandma was 6 weeks old here.|
I love that her brothers and sister are in the car behind. :)
Pouring over some of these pictures has been like opening a treasure chest! I love asking my mom who all the people are in the photos and the stories behind them. Some of the same heartaches we face today, my grandmother and her family faced similar forks in the road whether it was as a child or as a mother herself. Many of the good times like from the picture above, I've experienced fun moments like that myself with my own family and cherish the memories even more. Such incredible lives during that time in our world and all the while the pictures remind me of pictures I see on blogs around the world today! A photograph never really changes only the people do.
Oh goodness how I miss her so very much! When the days are hard and filled with moments of regret for things I didn't ask, I wrap myself in one of her scarves and inhale her scent. One day that scent will be gone from the scarf but the memories will always be here for me. And for those memories and those of my family members, they are a treasure and I feel so blessed to be able to dig through a box of pictures and ask the questions I never asked.
I love Wednesdays when I get to go and get inspired by other photographers sharing
their beautiful black and white shots! Go and enjoy!!
