Her legacy lives on in my heart
and in the hearts of many.
We all carry different pieces of her life with us.
As a tribute to my grandparents, I wanted capture an image for our Christmas card that helped me cling onto some of my memories and might spark memories for others.
I chose to take this picture on my grandparents old yellow couch.
Why there?This was where I grew up watching my grandfather sleep. It was his spot. I can still see him sitting on the far left side greeting the kids and grandchildren as we would walk in the door. This was a place of comfort and rest for him.
This yellow couch was also where all the family would gather together. Many conversations were had on this couch. We sat on that couch and read the paper, watched tv, ate many thanksgiving, Christmas, and other holiday meals around this couch. It was a place where we were together.
So, I hope when you see this card, you think of...
and Gathering Together.
