Old Family Photos Remind us that our Stories Started Before Us
Your story started before you.
In this photo, there’s an angelic little girl seated on a woman’s lap. That little girl is my grandmother Louise.
She was the most loving woman I have ever met. She was my safe haven as a child; she lived on a farm and it was a magical place.
She taught me about gardening, the real way, the old way. She taught me Breton, a Gaelic dialect spoken in Brittany, France.
She taught me about life and humility. She taught me to sit in silence and listen to the world around me. She made the best crêpes in the world.
Best of all, she taught me about love – true, authentic love.
This beautiful little girl in an old photograph grew up to be someone’s Saint.
