Thank you Christine for taking such a wonderful picture. Our children are so blessed to know their great-grandparents.

My Grandpa is 91. Here he holds the hand of his youngest great-grandchild, Annabelle who will be 10 months this week. After decades of blue collar work, his hands are incredibly soft and I love how he loves my babies. This picture reminds me of the quote that goes something like this: A man is never so tall as when he stoops to hold the hand of a child. I've looked everywhere and cannot find the exact quote. Anyone out there have it? Anyway, I love that thought and it is so true. It also reminds me of the gentle hand of our loving Father, as he protects, corrects and guides his wayward children.
