A good friend of mine has roped me into scrapbooking… I’ve been wanting to get into it for a while but just didn’t know where to start. Most of my pictures are digital so I thought, first things first… gotta pick which pictures I want to scrapbook, right? So I got right into it. One of my first albums I want to get done is my wedding album. As I’m uploading pictures from iPhoto to Flickr, I came across the video of my Dad playing guitar while my Sister & I sang to my Grandparents on their 50th Anniversary. I’ve watched this video several times but today for some reason it really made me miss my Grandpa. As I’m typing, I’m still crying. While watching the video I decided to just watch him… and I noticed something. He rubs his thumb across my Grandma’s hand the way Matt does mine sometimes.
When my Grandpa first saw mine & Matt’s wedding video he noticed Matt did the same thing, rubbing his thumb back and forth along the top of my hand, as a way to sooth my nerves. He even told my Grandma, “Look at him rubbing his thumb across her hand.” And I didn’t even see he did the same thing in this video with my Grandma.
There’s a funny parallel to me with this… Matt and I announced our engagement the same day at the party of my Grandparent’s anniversary and he did the same thing my Grandpa did.
I’m definitely going to have to scrapbook about this. 🙂 (tears still falling)…
Unfortunately the link isn’t working… I’ll post it when I get a chance to figure it out.
