This is a shot of the mirror in my Papaw's bedroom. While visiting in Texas this past week I was lucky, oh so lucky, to have gotten to visit with him twice. Its always difficult to talk while you are trying to keep three rowdy little boys busy and relatively quiet...not an easy task my friends.
But he and my Grammer are pretty special people to me.
I can't remember why I went back to this room now. But I found it interesting the three photos that he had stuck in the top of his mirror. I think they pretty much some up my vision of him.
::The first one is of an airplane. He was a pilot for many years. When he started the tractor, with us aboard, he would make us say "contact" before he would turn the tractor key...like we were starting a plane.
::The second is of he and a cow when he was a little boy. He raised cows for many years too. Some of my fondest memories of their house was visiting the cows.
::And finally, the last photo is a snapshot of my grandfather's grandparents.
I've been reflecting a lot on this past year too and working on a bit of a month by month recap with a few more photos.
Maybe I'll get it finished tomorrow. But for now I'm thinking about what three photos will be on my mirror 50 years from now.
What are you reflecting on today?
