This week's You Capture challenge theme was Peace.
When I first saw the theme my thought was, "I don't even know where to start with that one."
My second thought was, "all the Mom's who participate are going to have pictures of their sleeping children."
I kept thinking.
Saturday morning I went with my parents to the funeral for the father of my Dad's high school best friend.
I've been to cemetaries millions of times, so it wasn't anything new to me... but for some reason it had the most peaceful feel this time.
It was so quiet... aside from the locusts chirping. But that added to the peacefulness.
My mind was made up.
I decided that the next morning, while Mom was at work and Dad and Westin were golfing, I was going to take Dad's super-sweet camera and go visit my grandparents' gravesite.
Off to Milan Cemetary I went. Camera in hand.
Apparently they've cut down the tree that used to be my guide for finding them!!
But now I know where they are again. And I spent a beautiful morning thinking about Papa and Nanny.
And listening to a chainsaw in the background. Oh well, I still enjoyed it and blocked out the chainsaw as much as possible!
