Little Gifts # 3



 Can you see how much they love each other? 

These are two people I love more than I could ever say.

It's been a couple of weeks of unplanned stress.

It's getting better.

But above all that 

seeing my Mother and my Daughter 

together like this

is reason enough

to know joy.

This a very huge gift for me

and I hope it may remind you

of how good it is to be in the presence 

of people who love one another.

That reminder is 

my little gift # 3

to you today

love

  1. That is an adorable picture. I'd crop it closer and turn it black and white and turn up the contrast. Just saying :).

      I think I will treasure this picture of all of my life

  5. That is just so sweet. But also logical. Grandparents and Grandchildren are natural allies against the Parents. Perhaps you have noticed that?

    Blessings and Bear hugs, regardless.

    1. Mark, that is entirely so wrong ! So what does that mean--you'll be cooking Christmas dinner?

      I hope the holiday favorably surprises us both :-)
