He has been traveling a lot lately. He lives in Tennessee and is many miles between his children and grandchildren, but in the past two months he has driven to Arizona and Florida twice, then Mississippi a few times and now here in Louisiana. It is a scary thought that hes on the road driving. I think this will be his last trip. He said it was just too much on him, and hes right! I guess I never thought about how he would be when he got up in age. It really is sad.
When I was a little girl, I would look at my mothers hands and then at mine. Hers was so soft, never showing all the veins and wrinkles that mine show now. I see in this photo the beginning and the end of things to come, the innocence of youth and the pain of getting old. As I look at my granddaughter now, I see the young girl she will grow to be. Most likely I wont be here on this earth to see her marry or be a mother, but I will cherish every minute I have on this earth with her and my daughters as I get old!
