“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”

Mourningtime

Just two days before I was called down to be near my dying mother I went to my Son's house and babysat my two grandsons. Maybe we are given some joy before we experience sadness so that a small part of this happiness lingers and gives us strength. My grandchildren will never know how much these images made the sorrow of my Mother's death, somehow, easier.
Life is a gift that makes death a memory and mourning into morning.

it's true god is very gentle and He sends us loving little gifts to comfort to minister to our hearts. Jesus is so kind, there is no greater love.

I'd like to think that joy is given to us as a gift, as is Grace and Beauty and Memories...may you be blessed with the most beautiful of memories and sweet dreams of your mother. Thinking of you...
