While waiting for my bride to walk down the aisle a couple of weekends ago, I snapped this shot. It stirred up so many emotions inside, even viewing it now still captivates me. Not only does Grandpa look dapper in his pinstripes, he looks happy.
Happy to be here. Happy to be present. Happy to have lived through life and now watch a grandchild start a new chapter of his.
This image inspires me to really live my life and stay present in the smallest moments. Enjoy my days and be grateful for all that I have been blessed with. This image brings back so many memories of my dearest grandmother who shared her heart with us in every moment we spent with her. It pushes me to let the troubles of my day fall at the wayside, knowing there are far more important things ahead. Sometimes I forget how powerful imagery can be. This image is a perfect reminder.
