After she passed away in 2010, it saddened me that my own kids would really never know her. Both of my sons met her but they were so young I don't think they will remember being with her. My cousins and their children lived in the same town as my grandmother. They have countless pictures of their kids in her lap, reading books, at her house, etc. Well now I have that too, the pictures include my grandma and my sons. She is reading books, playing the piano, have conversations with them - all the things I remember her doing with me.
What I would give to have her read another story to my kids (and to me).
I can hear the expression in her voice. She would point out every detail in a picture or story.
This picture was fun to look at. I had forgotten how chunky our youngest son was at this age.
This picture melts my heart. Since then, the piano has been moved from my parents' house to my house. The kids "play" it all the time.
Oh my word, it doesn't get any better than this. :)
I guess I will no longer raze my mom about keeping old pictures on her memory card. These pictures were an expected and priceless surprise. Thanks Mom!
