Past, Present and Future
Today’s Shutter Sisters post is about seeing someone else in yourself, so this 4 generation picture is totally appropriate. It was taken nearly a year ago at my maternal grandfather’s memorial service. It’s me, my mom, my sister, my grandma, and my two girls.
I’ve always looked like my mom – and many who knew her young say I look like my grandma, too. Some say Megan looks most like me, but I think Emily looks more like me. We all have the same hair. And we are all alike – and yet different – in so many other ways.
I’m going to visit my grandma today. She was excited about it when I told her I was coming a few weeks ago. She was equally excited when I told her last week and excited again when I told her yesterday. The dementia is tragic. But her mother had it, and so did her sister. Is it in my future, too?
