love

This video, while sad, is also such a blessing.  What a wonderful testimony of a man, a husband, a father, a caregiver, a mother, a wife, a son, a family.  The tears will flow.  I love that their son recorded this, even in its sadness, there is blessing.  What a reminder of how important it is to record moments, whether it is photography, or videos, whether the moment is monumental or just ordinary. It matters. I am taking a video course on making time capsules, and sometimes it is difficult to capture the everyday, the ordinary, like it matters.  Looking at this film, you see her when she was a toddler, fiddling with her brother, you see her walking through a gathering of people eating, and playing with her new son. We get to see glimpses of her through out her life, and that has always been such a fascinating thing to me, an important thing.  When I feel silly, or ridiculous doing things like taking pictures of feet, or something mundane, I will remember this, and remember how one day, it will not be seen as mundane, it will matter.

This is beautiful. I watched it a few months ago and it really got to me. My mother has alzheimers, but is quite advanced. Sometimes she remembers me, other times not. I don't have one photo with my mother when I was young. I think my first photo with my mum was at my wedding. I so wish I had something like this of her. All the memory making we all do matters so much. xo
