Life’s Moments Captured

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but I think a painting may be more.

One of my best friends, Joe, was recently in town and surprised me with a gift.

After quickly unwrapping, I saw the beautiful painting. This photo means so much to me, not only is it one of my favorites, but we took this the day my grandfather passed away.  Mema told me we needed to be happy even through the tough times. She said that he is in a better place, and we that we are blessed to have each other to lean on.

When I saw the painting, it took me right back to that moment two and a half years ago.

It means the world to me that Joe had this painted for me, but also because our friend P.J. painted it.  He is extremely talented and I’m sure put extra love into it.
I am obsessed with the details on Mema’s face and the way he made the photo come to life.
