Legacy

My Grandmother passed away.
We had a service for her on Saturday. The family gathered from far and wide. It was nice to see people, even under the circumstances.
The generations have now shifted. "we" are the parents. "they" are the grand parents. "we" are not at the kids table anymore. The kids are. The shift has been gradual. But now it is official.
In sorting through her 'things' (which she brutally, mercifully kept in check) her crafting streak was chronicled. She was a crocheter, a knitter, and an amazing embroiderer. More than one person lost it over the 'sewing basket'. it had beautiful old scissors, fabric tape measures... and all kinds of wonderful familiar treasures.
This picture was taken in May of 09, when I introduced Amelia.
I will treasure it now more than ever.
