Then there is the picture of Diana as a baby, with me, my mom, and my Grandma Tanner. I know that I am very blessed to have had my grandparents alive for as long as I did. I was well into my thirties before they died. And I feel blessed that Diana was able to get a picture with my Grandma. One of my favorite things about my Grandma was her love of reading. I treasure my set of Anne of Green Gables books that she gave me when I turned twelve. Also she always smelled of lemons because of a lemon scented oil she would always use for dry skin. There was mint growing outside of her back door. I have too many wonderful memories to mention. So hurray for the blessing of belonging to a family.

Going through some pictures, I found these two and couldn't resist a post about the blessing of family. Of course the older picture is me as a baby, my mom holding me, with my grandma and great grandma looking on. I love how everyone in this picture are looking at me as if I hold the future in my hands. My Great Grandma died when I was in kindergarten so I don't really remember her. But I love this picture anyway.
