    Easter Memory

    Journaling reads:
    I thought about you today, Mother, as I often do around holidays. Last Sunday was Easter, and my main memory of you at Easter time is your comment on the weather. When it rained on Easter Day (as it often seemed to do), you would always say, "God made it rain so the poor people wouldn't feel bad about not having new clothes for Easter." I have no clue what you meant.
    Since you left this earth I've had five kids of my own, two of whom are now grown and married. I'm sorry you never knew them, because I know how much you wanted grandchildren, and they're some really amazing people.
    Here's what my kids looked like ten years ago on Easter. (The younger ones look a lot less dorky now, but Griffin still stands on his toes to look taller.) This photo brings back memories of when the kids were younger and wed line them up in the front yard every Easter to take photos of them.
    I'm thankful for my love of taking photos. Whereas there are only a few of me growing up, my kids have had almost every moment of their lives captured on film. I wish I had more photos of you, because I don't really remember you as a person anymore. I only remember you through photos of you, and that makes me sad.
