Treasure

Another great word.
One of my greatest treasures is my family and I love that I can set a self timer and get in pictures with them…

Of course with Christmas right around the corner I had to do this with one of my Shelties.

This is Nanny.

Although I did not take this picture it is one of my dearest treasures. Nanny is no longer with us but the story behind this picture is worth more then any amount of money. On this cold Dec afternoon went to I picked up Nanny and take her to the mall. She had tried everything to get her daughter to call and cancel our plans. Her daughter did not call. I pulled up and we got Nan ready to go out. When she stepped out and saw my truck she asked if we were riding in that. I said yes and she said well then let’s go (I have an Orange Chevy Colorado.) We stopped at Macy’s and wrote letters to Santa, got hot pretzels and made our way to see Santa. Nanny had never sat on Santa’s lap so I was going to make sure that happened! As we stood in line to see Santa Nanny told a little girl that she had seen 99 Christmases. To my knowledge Nan never told anyone how old she was, especially strangers. I’m not 100% sure what she whispered in Santa’s ear but the picture they took that day is priceless. We had pictures printed to put in her Christmas card when we got home. Nan passed a few days later. The joyful part was her friends got the picture of her enjoying life at 99. What a great treasure I have!
