Day 12 EDL
She was so excited to see us when we walked in the door. The first the she asked Kason was if he wanted a bowl of applesauce. :) Kason, of course said yes... and ended up having 2 bowls of applesauce... which pretty much made her day! :) I visited for a while, then ended up leaving with a whole sack full of apples, oranges, a container of applesauce, and some fudge. It makes her so happy to give what she has to others.
I told her I was doing an Everyday Life Project and taking a "photo a day." I asked her if I could take a picture of her applesauce cooking on the stove, she said sure... While I had my camera out I snapped a few other photos as well... and oh to my surprise!!! My Favorite Photo was captured! The picture in this post has got to be my favorite one so far this year. In this one picture, I see so much... Her house, where I spent the majority of my childhood; My grandpa's elbow at the corner of the table, where he eats his lunch every day and has done for the past 70 years; My grandma pouring applesauce into that little bowl... so many times I have seen this same bowl... so many times she was pouring it for me when I was little; My grandma's worn hands... she has worked so hard her entire life and yet, at 94 still can peel apples all day and make applesauce for her entire family to enjoy... And last but not least (as I wipe a tear..........) This is the image of her I have in my mind... When I think of her, this is what I see... and although she will not be in my life here on earth forever... this image of her will always be in my mind and heart. I love you grandma!
