I placed Owen in the middle of the bed & walked into the bathroom. Passing back through the doorway into the bedroom I paused to watch them.
Garrett had come into the room & was kneeling above Owen. He bent down & gently touched Owen's head. They were now nose to nose with Garrett whispering secrets to Owen. Sensing my presence he turned to me smiling & said "Hi Mama." Then the moment was over.
I often find them in these moments of brotherly love & for this I am thankful.
Thanksgiving is usually the holiday that I choose not to take pictures. I make an effort instead to cherish the moments & keep them with me in my heart. However, yesterday I was witnessing one such moment & knew I also had to have a picture.
My grandmother was able to join us yesterday & she met Owen for the first time. I witnessed yesterday that the grandmother I knew is slowly slipping away. Neither of them will remember this moment but I will never forget the way she held him and sang while they rocked back & forth.
One day I will tell him how they were so taken with each other & now I can show him. For this I am thankful.
