Happy Birthday Grandmama

Yesterday was a very rough day for me. It was my Grandmother’s first birthday since her passing, and although I wished her a happy heavenly birthday on my family’s page, I just couldn’t bring myself to post anything personally. I’m doing somewhat better today so I wanted share my love and support with my family by creating a photo in honor of her memory. I know it’s technically no longer her date of birth but, I will proudly celebrate her life any and everyday for the rest of my life.

This photo represents life’s beauty and strength, yet it’s fragility. Cherish your precious life and the life of your loved ones. I love you, I miss you forever Grandmama!!!


For The Love Of My Grandmothers

I was fortunate enough to have you both until I was 42 years old 

You helped raise me, and love me, may God bless your beautiful soul 

Although I’m sad, I can’t be mad I suppose, because one was a jewel 💎 and the other was a rose🌹 

I’ll always love you both forever! Your son, Robert ❤

Rose

You were the strongest person I’ve EVER known!!! I didn’t just love you, I admired you. I hate that you had to endure so much pain in your life…I pray that God will finally grant you the peace that you so rightfully deserved. Another one of my 3 mothers is gone, and another piece of my heart is gone with her 💔 I struggled for hours just to try and finish writing this short paragraph…I can’t go any further right now…I’ll stop here 😢😥😭
I wrote this poem for you months ago and I want to share it with my entire family. It’s simply titled, R.O.S.E.
“Delicate Yet Strong, From His Garden You Were Chose”
“Delivered By God, Our Sweet, Beautiful, Rose.” 🌹

The Definition Of A Jewel

According To Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary A Jewel Is Defined As:

1: a precious stone : gem
2: an ornament of precious metal often set with stones or decorated with enamel and worn as an accessory of dress
3: one that is highly esteemed***

 

Here is a short poem I wrote in memory and honor of my wonderful grandmother, Emma Jewel X Orsborn.

Sunrise: May 18, 1928  Sunset: January 6, 2018.

They say no one is perfect, you’re the exception to the rule 

Because, God crafted perfection when he created this Jewel.


Spring Is Here!

The weather has started to warm up and I like most people have been out enjoying it. I spent last weekend with my family at the local marina meeting new people and watching all the families playing in the sun. One of the more fun moments of that outing was when the families, and more specifically the children were feeding the birds. For some it was their first time both feeding and being so close to all the different birds. The reactions were priceless! One particular moment stood out, and that’s what I’ve decided to shared today. A very friendly and energetic grandmother was teaching her equally excited granddaughter how to feed the ducks. It was a touching site to just watch the two of them interact with one another. As a photographer I live to capture these moments but, as a person I live to experience them as well.

For Posterity

My Granny curiously watched me as I walked into the house, sat my bag down, unzipped the pouch, and took out my camera. She watched intensely as I removed the lens cap, then unscrewed the protective filter. She nervously stared at me as I approached her with my camera and after raising the the lens in her direction she quickly yelled, “I look a mess today, please don’t take my picture right now son!” Being the hard-headed child that I am I proceeded to snap anyway. Embarrassed, she looked right at me and asked, “why are you taking my picture?” I answered, “because, you’re beautiful and I love you!” Then I said, “I need these pictures to pass down to all the future generations of our family” “They need to know who the Queen of this family is” She smiled shyly then said, “ok son, go ahead” She has always spoiled me… She always lets me have my way and I’m happy that she does 🙂 This is real love!
