Wordless (almost) Wednesday: Hop

This photo hangs on my fridge with a cheerful bright green magnet. It is a photo of my dear grandma, taken last month to show off a birthday gift she personally selected for Amelia. She saw this singing, dancing bunny in a store and knew it was the perfect birthday present for her great-granddaughter.

Amelia met Great Grandma a couple times, but distance kept us physically apart most of the year. Modern technology, however, could always bring us back together. This photo was included in the package so Amelia would know exactly from whom it came.

 My grandma passed away four weeks later after a very brief illness. This was probably the last photo taken. I'm not sure how long it will stay up on my fridge... but I don't foresee it coming down anytime soon.

And thanks to my iPhone, we were able to send Grandma a video of Amelia enjoying her new friend. With a real-life thank you. I'm sure it brought her joy.

Awww, it's amazing how much technology has added to the familial relationships this day in age - a video thank you - how awesome is that?!!?

We still have a picture from the last family Christmas that SuperDad's Grandma was alive for on our fridge. It's been up for several years and isn't going anywhere either :o)

Oh, what a treasure! Sometimes technology drives me insane, but it is great for preserving our memories.
