Photographs document change. See that baby in the corner? That’s me. See that man and woman on either side of me? They raised me, cared for me, loved me…. and the time passed. The grandfather in the left foreground has long been in eternity with his God.
Those parents of mine – they sat at the table with me decades ago – and at my table for the recent Thanksgiving holiday meal.
I am so glad they are still here.
Somehow I am now holding a grandson in my arms and the photo documents the time together. The evidence of time passing is in my face (and also the saggy neck) – but yes – I will be “in the photo” and hold this boy. Time seems to pass quickly.
Grateful for the time. Not excited about the effects of it. 🙂
