Growing Older Quote

Once a month I attend a meeting comprised of parents who homeschool.  There is a sign in the room, that has a quote about aging, that just grabs my attention every time I read it.  Because it speaks to me, I snapped a picture of it, so I could get the quote right.  Then I came home, and searched my photo archives until I found a photo to add the quote to.

The photo is my daughter’s hand holding onto our late Grandma Hig’s hand. This photo exemplifies age and innocence.  The innocence in my daughter’s grasp.  The fragility of the skin on Grandma’s hand.  The spokes of the wheel of Grandma’s wheelchair.  I thought it was perfect for this quote.
