Grandmothers' hands - Terry

This picture was emailed to me by my sister-in-law, Connie. She thought it went along with our stories of grandmothers' hands, so I am including it today. If I must give credit, here's where I found the picture and accompanying story when I searched the internet for the source. And here's the explanation:
I was privileged to take a photo of "Five Generations of Women" shortly before my 93 year-old Grandmother passed away last year. The photo, shown below, features the hands of my Grandmother, Mom, Sister, Niece and Great-Niece. While I can't take credit for the idea, I was so happy to have had the suggestion & capture this moment. It inspired a friend of mine to do something similar which turned out so beautiful and a special keepsake prior to her father's passing.
If you are fortunate enough to have 5 generations living, run out and take a picture like this!

I love it! We have a photo of Samantha the day she was baptised. She was very rlaxed laying in great-grandma's lap. Next to her face was great-grandma's hand, it's very sweet.
