Funny how some things happen in life. I was preparing a blog post about a portrait session with my friend’s mom, who’s battling brain cancer. Then I got an email from Gloria who inquired about a portrait session for her grandmother. Gloria shared with me that they just found out her grandmother has lung cancer, and the doctor told the family she has about 5 months to live. Grandma doesn’t know yet though. Wow…I was speechless.
At that time I had recently done a session for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep as well as the portrait session for the Sheffers. Then I got Gloria’s email. As I was thinking about these three families, I was convinced God was leading me to use my gift as a photographer to bless others by doing special portrait sessions like this.
Despite the busy holiday season and having to postpone our session due to the crazy snow storm I got to meet Gloria’s grandmother. What a lady. I love her. She was full of joy and energy. I couldn’t believe her when she told me she was 90 yrs. old. She said it was by God’s grace that she’s been healthy so far, and had a blessed life. I came back encouraged by her strong faith in God, and her joyful smile and laugh!
Thank you Gloria for the opportunity to meet your family.
Meet Gloria’s grandmother, and her daughters. Couple of them live in Korea and Germany, so I’m glad we were able to include them while they were in town.
