"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Foto Story Friday #128-- The helper

I know that I have talked about EmmaLece and Nana in the past, but I'm going to revisit the subject with a few new photos of the two.
EmmaLece has a special love for Nana.  Anytime we are over to Grandma and Grandpa's she always makes sure to go say "Hi" to her and have a little chat with her.  After that she runs off to play or watch tv or whatever else she can find to do.
 Once it is time to eat, she magically reappears and is ready to get Nana's bib on her and to help her to the table.
Last Sunday evening, as we were all getting up to the table, here came Em beating Grandma to Nana's chair and holding out her hands to help her up.  It is so sweet that we nearly have tears spring to our eyes.
Together, they make their way to the table.... the young and the old!  Each one thinking she is helping the other.  EmmaLece gets her settled onto her chair making sure she is in the right chair and properly clothed in her bib before she finds her own chair.
As they made their way to the table, Grandma and I were walking behind and We both saw what a precious photo this will be in future years.  I quickly got out the camera to record the moment.  One day EmmaLece will look back at these photos and the tears just may spring to her eyes as they did ours.
Never underestimate the power of youth!  or the wise council to be like a little child!

I had to wait for my own tears to clear so I could post my response. My heart is as full as my eyes...bless you, dear Carrie, for sharing the unconditional love Emmy shows for Nana! The Light of Christ truly shines through her!
