I Heart Faces - We Are Family



This is my entrance into 2010's Week 3 Theme: We Are family

I thought you might want to check out this other post with her Great Grandmother from a year Earlier. I can't believe how much Holly has changed.

I am so glad Holly got to meet her again this year. The sad part is, I fear neither of them will remember it. I guess that is why the magic of camera's are so amazing, as Holly gets older I can tell her stories about her Great grandmother, and show her pictures from when they were together, so she will feel like she is part of her.
I think one of the things so bad about living so far away, is that you only get to visit once a year, it was Sad this year when I went to see my Grandmother, because her Dementia had gotten much worse, I think before we left there was a glimmer of recognition in her eye, she loved being int he photos and holding Holly, she didn't want to let go, but she didn't say our names or know who we were even when we told her.
The year before, when we told her who we were, you could tell she remembered, it clicked. She may not look that different, but sadly, she was much further away this time.
