I noticed that my daughter has this photo in her Facebook collection.  I couldn't resist downloading it.  The image reveals a pure, distilled moment of truth that is sometimes offered up as a precious gift in the form of a candid photo.  My mother has been absent from this earth for over a year.  My daughter is now a vibrant young professional and dedicated mother, living in Brooklyn, New York.
This photo heartened me.  The circle of life goes on.  My mother shared a few joyous moments with her granddaughter by reading her a book.  Although Mom is gone,  I can admire this picture and use it as an inspiration—and a reminder of the value of grandparents, grandchildren, and books.

  1. You are so right, life is a circle and as the Joni Mitchell song goes 'it goes round and round'. Such a touching photo, and you'll read to Dottie just as your mother did to Meg!
