This week, I received a lovely email from the editor of an online Christian website dedicated to “helping women persevere through the trials of life.” She had seen the family photo that I had taken ~ 5 Generations of Hands ~ on the National Call to Prayer website and asked me for permission to post it on their site on a page dedicated to growing old gracefully.
As some of you know, that particular photo was just a family photo that ended up being widely circulated around the internet and has appeared on numerous sites without my name or knowledge. I was very touched and honored that she asked me, and that she also included some of the other photos I took that day. Seeing all of it again brought tears to my eyes. My Grandmother passed away a month later.
