Why Our Old Family Pictures are Worth More Than Gold
My cousin just sent me this photograph of my grandma Nina. It is one I had never seen until now.
This is beauty and grace.
Unashamedly standing tall, not hiding, relaxed and at home. It sings to me. It makes me want to be fully present in photographs.
I want my daughters, once they are grown and my laugh lines are deeper and my pace is slower, to see me and think of me the way I do about my grandma here…content.
I want them to know that I lived fully and bravely and that I saw myself as valuable.
Photographs are worth more than gold. ~shared by @joyprouty
