We we blessed to be able to visit with cousins a little bit ago. My cousin Chuck and his family traveled home from Oregon to visit with his parents and we were all able to gather at my sister's house for a family picnic. What fun. Sadly, Chuck's wife, Royal and his son, Nick were not able to join us, as Nick came down with a fever in the morning. I was so sad, as I do not get to visit with them often......as there are way too many miles between us all now.
I was able to take this photograph of Mamie [I did not get many pictures that day, as my camera battery was low and my flash was not cooperating].....but I think this image is priceless.
This is Mamie and the newest member of our family....Miss Sadie Philomena.
I just love the contrast of the years in Mamies hands......and the pink newness of Sadies little feet!
It made me think of this poem by William Blake.....as I see eternity being held in the palm of Mamies hand.....her legacy, her family. Life is truly a Blessing.
Auguries of Innocence
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
~William Blake (1709-1784)
