Weekly Smile – Pictures & Memories

Some of you many know that my mother passed away in the summer. I know, its weekly smile, and so please let me explain. My older son asked for a picture of grandma to put in his room so I dragged out the thumb drives to find one for him. The picture I found is of my mother and my older son shortly after we brought him home. It is a picture, and a moment, that made my smile then and makes me smile now.

  1. I have a lump in my throat reading your post.
    And also a bit of a teary smile. So sorry for your loss.
    Thank you for sharing a treasured image & memory of an intimate occasion. It’s wonderful that our children want to remember.


  2. Hi Shari, Life and work has been nuts and I’m just now getting to this, this amazing story and photo. The way and timing that my mom passed did not allow for such capture of a similar memory for my kids. I’m envious, but grateful for the legacy and memories we both have of our moms. This photo, I predict will become priceless in how your boy recalls grandma. Wonderful!
