A Photo of Joy
One year ago May 29th, Mother passed into The Next Big Thing. Last week, the daughter of one of her closest life-long friends sent us a photo.
The photo is from the Millsaps College yearbook. I’ve seen it before. We three girls spent hours (and hours and hours) as kids going through Mother’s college and high school annuals. Virginia Price was a Beauty, a Class Favorite, a ROTC Sponsor, a Beauty and a Favorite. She had lots of photos.
As my older sister said when she saw this photo, what had riveted her when we were young—Mother’s beauty—had been replaced by what shines through in this photo: Mother’s joy.
