A VERY Special Post...95 Years

Meet three of the most precious people in my life...my great grandmother, Della she just turned 95 in May, my Grandma Carol, one of my very, very best friends...we talk almost every single day, and last, my Uncle Dallas - one of my very favorite uncles.

When I arrived at Grandma's house to do their pictures, I walked down the hallway as my grandmother called my name. I opened the bedroom door and there stood my beautiful, elegant 95 year old great grandma. I couldn't help but hold back the tears at the sight of her. She looks amazing and has had a rough year - a very rough year. In August, she fell and broke her pelvis - something I thought would definitely shorten my great grandma's time here on earth, but to my surprise...here she stood...three intensive months of physical therapy and against all odds, she stood before me as I helped her put her beautiful earrings on her paper thin ears with tears streaming down my cheeks telling her how beautiful she is. I couldn't help but take a silent moment to give thanks to God for the blessing to still have her. I feel so greatful.
We still have yet to get a photograph of five generations...not just five generations, but five generations of women (any volunteers???) something I definitely need to do. :)

and my incredibly beautiful grandmother...
and my handsome "Uncle D".
