happy st. patrick’s day

this week

This week has been filled to the brim with taxes, sympathy thank you notes, family outings, and retreat preparations. I’ve also been trying to gather pictures together for my grandpa and other family members.  The good news is, with my part of taxes out of the way a huge burden has been lifted. The bad news…  I have barely even begun to scratch the surface as far as pictures go.

The boys and are heading out to see Grandpa this weekend. A couple of weeks ago he asked my mom and me for pictures of Grandma to put out on display (he wanted her alone, “just her”). I’d shown him the above image from my iPhone during our last visit and his eyes filled with tears as he focused in. The first thing I did when I returned home was order that image for him. Needless to say, we have a special delivery to make.

I’ll be posting the legacy journal prompts I’d mentioned in this post HERE on Monday. Have a safe and merry St. Patrick’s Day!

I recently had the same task – going through grandparents photos for a funeral service. Although it was sad, I feel like it was also healing. I think it helped to have all the pics of my grandfather out as proof that he lived a long and good life. I know how much you treasure photos, so I hope the process brings you some healing as well.

I totally agree, Crystal.
