A Nice Photo Meme

I snagged this nice photo tag while I was surfing through some sites, including an LDS Chat Room which I wanted to tell my friend about.

Here are the rules:

1. Choose the 4th folder where you store pictures on your computer.
2. Select the 4th picture in the folder, and post it on your blog.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag four people to do the same.
5. No cheating (cropping, editing, etc.)

This is a picture of Zoe (at just five months old) in the arms of her grandfather, with her fingers touching the picture of her late grandmother. I think it's a lovely photograph. My dad never had a penchant for exuberant expression but this one picture showed his emotions quite well. I think he looked so proud to hold his very first grandchild here. At the same time, I think that there is a bittersweet expression in his face too, maybe thinking about the somewhat sad fact that my mother never lived to see and hold her own grandchildren. When she was still alive and healthy, I remember her urging me to get married so that she can just retire from teaching to take care of her grandchildren. But God had other plans for her. She went ahead of us because He thought she was ripe for heaven. Anyway, I know and believe that my mother, from heaven, always looks below us with pride and looks after us like an angel would. She is now our guardian angel.
