Most of today and the last few evenings I have been immersed in family photos, appropriate music, and other audio clips getting the slideshow ready for Grandma’s memorial service. Tomorrow we head 5 hours south to Portland where we’ll meet up with some of the family for dinner and a fun evening of catching up and story telling.
An amazing thing has happened the last couple days while I’ve been burying myself in my project. My heart has been moved from sad and tearful to joyful and glad. I’ve been reminded by studying a lifetime of photos that my Grandmother really had wonderful life. She wouldn’t have changed a thing.
And that, my friends is a very wonderful gift to those left behind.
