treasured photos

At our Thanksgiving Day celebration, my sister-in-law was taking LOTS of pictures. She told me she had a new camera and wanted to get some practice using it. So we really didn't pay attention to all the picture taking she was doing throughout the time they were here that day.

Yesterday she handed me her gift to our family and told me that although she wasn't a "crafty" kind of person, she hoped we enjoyed the gift she made for us.

The gift is a beautiful album of candid pictures of our family she had taken on Thanksgiving. In the front of the album she wrote about family memories and how they are such a keepsake. Realizing that we have a son leaving in the new year and how difficult it tends to be to get our entire family together, she wanted to preserve the memory of this special day. Her last sentence was....

"A picture is worth so many, many words--yet, even these photos don't come close to describing the love in this family."

Isn't that the sweetest thing?

How can you put a price on such a gift? You can't, can you?

Priceless :-)

Hope you received some treasured gifts on Christmas, too!

What a marvelous gift to receive. Yes, you can not capture the love of the family in a photo, but you can keep a photo can capture a precious moment :)
