This photo was taken at one of my favorite places.

I used to come to this place often with my grandmother to have a picnic and take photos. We formed many happy memories here! Sadly she suddenly passed away towards the end of 2019. It is hard not having her here, there is so much that I miss!

Around the same time she passed away I met my grandfather for the first time. In an effort to make some memories with him, I asked if he would like to go to this spot, and he happily said yes!

It is bittersweet going to this spot without my grandma because we formed so many wonderful memories here, but I am happy to have gotten a chance to make good memories with my grandfather and share with him a place that means a lot to me.
What wonderful focus on the egret and such a lovely story behind this spot

I am sorry for your loss - it continues to hurt doesnt it? but lovely to have those memories and now build more. The lovely egret stands out well against the dark background.

@helenhall Thank you very much! Yes, the pain doesnt go away! At times I find myself being ambushed with saddness but I know she wouldnt want me to dwell on it! God has helped me navigate life without her here but its not easy! Im happy he has provided the opportunity for me to form new memories with my grandpa!
