My Grandmother's camera...
It reminds me of the glimpses of time that you catch for a brief second and memories come flying back...good and some not always so good. Just like life. Last week at work we celebrated the birth of one of our staff member's new grandchildren. She was sooo thrilled and we were happy for her as we all took turns looking at her pictures. And on the other hand we were sad with another staff member who was absent one day. She stayed home with her best friend who had just found out the week before that she had terminal cancer and didn't want to die alone. Such a short time to find out that your life will soon be over.
Lately it seems like so many things in life are beyond our control and it's how we deal with it that will matter in the end. Did we do it with dignity or finesse or class? Today is a rainy day so it makes me introspective and reflective. I hope someday that I can say that the life's moments captured in my camera ...and my life, were for the most part, the best ones I could take.
