It has been quite some time since I participated in the weekly meme "Fun Monday". So today, I thought I would jump back on the band wagon. The current hostess with the mostess, Faye from Summit Musings challenges participants with the following assignment:
Your assignment for October 4 is to share a favorite family photo(s)and tell us why this particular photo means so much to you.
The rules are simple if you want to play. A host for the week--or month--selects a random topic and then everyone offers up their particular slant on the subject in a Monday post. All you have to do is sign up and the host publishes the list of participants. Write your post for the assigned topic and then sit back and wait for those lovely comments that we all crave.
Let's see, I have so many favorite family photos and it was very hard to pick just one, but this photo sits in my office and I look at it daily, so it definitely qualifies as one of my favorites and it means alot to me. It is a photo of my Grandmother, Muriel. The photo shows her standing at our front door with my two girls. It was the one and only time she visited our home in Pennsylvania. Our home was just under construction when she came to see the progress on it in July of 2003 (take note of the plywood floors). She never got to see our home completely finished, as she passed away in September of 2004 from cancer. My girls fondly referred to her as Great Grandmother "M" (M for Muriel). FW (my hubby) remembers "M" saying, "You have built a nice home for your girls to grow up in."
Thanks for hosting, Faye!
