I Heart Faces' theme for this week is "Hands on Fun." Well, the story behind this picture may not be "fun" but it allows me to think of so many fun memories.
I took this picture on the last day of my Bubbe's life. I didn't know it was going to be her last day alive. I decided, with my mom's permission, to take some black and white photos of her. I took some wonderful pictures that day. Each one shows a women at peace, and my family savoring the damp afternoon with our mother and grandmother.
Nearly 18 months after her death, I love this picture so much. My youthful hand held in her aged and experienced hand. With those hands she held me when I was born, hugged me, cooked for me, loved me, and taught me so much. I see an image of my Bubbe passing the future in my hands.
While this was taken on what became a sad day, this picture makes me happy, thinking of my Bubbe at peace and all the wonderful memories I have with her.
