An Unexpected Photograph

I was grumbling to myself wondering what on earth I was going to post about tonight.  It’s only day four of Nablopomo and I had convinced myself that my brain was exhausted.  One wouldn’t think something so simple as writing a quick post every day would be so hard.  Yet…sometimes…it just is. 

So I decided I would take the easy way out and just post a picture.  Preferably not one of the puppy. (We think she’s quite adorable, but realize that not everyone will feel that way!)

Instead of the puppy, I found this picture.  I have no idea where it came from.  The date on it is just last month…on the 10th.  It’s of my grandpa and I.


I love how I am nestled safely in my grandpa’s arms.  He’s wearing one of his soft cotton work shirts that I remember so well.  (I even have some buttons saved from those shirts)  I miss him and treasure the close relationship we had. 

This simple, unexpected picture opens up so many memories.  I’m glad it appeared from, well…wherever it came from!

    I LOVE that photo! Grandpa (or Grandma) for me is always a safe pair of arms where there is unconditional love, comfort and protection. 🙂

    Sweet time photo. I can know the feeling, but I cannot feel the sweet feelling with my grandfather because he left me before I born.

  4. That really is a wonderful photo. Thanks for sharing.

    I remember taking that picture, & and as to where it came from: the box in your “craft” room that holds all or most all of MY pictures. I remember being agast when after developing, I noticed that torn out seam in your pants! That was how your Grandpa was, he loved to hug his family and cuddle up with them. I am so glad you came across this picture. Do you know, that your grandparents wedding aniversary just passed (Nov 2, 1940). How I miss them!

    No Mom, it was in a file on my computer!

    Grandpa was always very open with his affections. And I do miss them like crazy.

    (Oh, and I was hoping that nobody would notice that my mother dressed me funny!)
