A family friend recently sent me this picture of Mama holding Abby almost three years ago. We were attending a baby shower. It says a lot about my Mama.
In most of the pictures we have of her and the grandchildren, the kids are looking at the camera and Mama is looking at the kids. She adores each and every one of them. And they adore her back.
It amazes me that despite having so many children (4) and so many grandchildren (14 including step-grandchildren), she fosters unique, individual relationships with all of us. She is always looking at us, within us... and always finding beauty.... even when it is difficult to see. She rocks.
