Picture This

 I'm with my parents.  My father is in the hospital.
Each night, my mother and I travel about 45 miles back to their home.

 She is surrounded by photos there.

 While eating breakfast or when eating a snack in the evening,
 she struggles to put names with the faces...to remember.

 Generations blur.  But love ignites her heart.

 Above, my mother.  Below,  her grandmother!

 Above, a four generation picture.  That's me - the child on my grandmother's lap.

Mother and Dad.


  1. Dear Rebecca ~ My heart goes out to you at this time. May God' love, peace and strength continue to surround all of you.

    Love, hugs and prayers ~ FlowerLady

  2. Praying Rebecca. It's beautiful to help our parents during these challenging times. Sweet family photos and memories.

    What a blessing.


  3. Keeping you all in my prayers. A difficult time for sure, with your mother just out of the hospital and now your father in the hospital.
    You are blessed with wonderful parents, and I am sure it is hard watching them suffer the ailments of old age.

    Blessings to you,


  4. I'm sorry you are going through this hard time. All of your mama's photos make me smile.

  5. How blessed to be surrounded by love and memories! I will pray for your family as you walk this together.

  6. What lovely pictures and such a lovely family. It is so hard to see time pass, but the memories are their own comfort. Thinking of you......

  7. Beautiful photographs, beautiful memories. Praying.

  8. Morning Rebecca,
    Wow, what a treasury of good memories......
    So sorry to hear your father is now in the hospital, will surely be praying it is not
    anything too serious. That must be especially hard on your Mom since she just go out of the hospital herself.....and I am sure on you too. Those sorts of things are just so stressful and tiring all the running back and forth, and the not knowing!

    Will sure keep you all in my prayers.
    Love and Blessings Hon,

  9. Sorry to hear your father is in the hospital. I hope he will soon feel better. I enjoyed the pictures. Very nice collection to treasure.

  10. Such a beautiful couple with a beautiful family. It was sad to see Franks mom forget all of us one by one... a little at a time. Hugs. Dee

  11. The faithfulness of God from generation to generation. It reminds me of a ceremony at a convention. 4 generations, passing a torch while a group sang, "I will carry the torch from generation to generation." I'm praying for you as you care for the ones who taught you about our God.

  12. My daughter loves pictures and displays them as much as she can. I love to see *generation* pictures and yours is a good one!
