I’m not going to do what one grandparent did. A man flew first-class, non-stop, from Boston to Los Angeles. A grandmother sat next to him and asked, “May I show you my grandchildren?” Politeness pushed truth to the side. He nodded, “Yes, please do.”
For 2 hours she unfolded 20 pictures with a full biography of each grandchild. She finished, looked at her watch, ‘Oh, I see we’re half way to Los Angeles. Now, it’s your turn. Please tell me about my grandchildren.”
But. I will share one picture that melts my heart and moistens my eyes. Last week Andrew took Taylor to the Father/Daughter dance. This picture offers more than a 1,000 words. Simply needed to share where joy happens and beams and is crystal clear.
Thank you, God, for family and friends. Especially when the clouds darken. May the shining of life be both seen and experienced. Amen.
