week #16

i am thankful for my dear great grandmother. for as long as i can remember she has let us mess with the wrinkles on her hands. i know that doesn't sound like much to ya'll but it's one of those memories that bring warm fuzzies to your heart. Katie mommy, as everyone calls her, is now 93. we all thought she wouldn't be able to make it to this reunion, which is why i'm all the more grateful i got to hold her hand and feel the softness of her wrinkles, and think of all the things her hands have done. i hope i'm just like her.

It's funny that Carm and I both took a picture of about the same thing and both picked that one to post. I almost decided to choose another one, but I couldn't. This one is just too precious. Carrie holding Katie Mommy's hand. Mommy is such a wonderful person and I feel blessed that I was able to meet her before God calls her home. She's a beautiful lady full of love and happiness. And her sense of humor is awesome! :) At the reunion, when the little kids were preparing to play their games, I poked Mommy and told her that she needs to go play. She puckered out her lower lip and said in a very kid-like voice "but I don't want to!" :) It's very obvious where all those kids, grand kids, and great grand kids got their sense of humor and love of laughter.
