I heart faces - contemplative

It's been awhile since I have participated since we're about to move back to Seattle in a couple weeks...but today seemed like a good day to try!

This weeks challenge theme is "contemplative" and although I have many that would fit, this picture of my daughter and her great-grandmother speaks to me more than any other.

Perhaps it's my daughters "true and tight" hug, or TUDY- as we call her- staring out with such wisdom and grace. Any way you look at it, my eyes tear up in gratitude to know and love such a wonderful woman.
