P52 {3} - I Dreamed a Dream

Despite the snow storm last weekend, my entire extended family from Seattle to Florida made it safely into Chicago. In between getting each family's picture with Grandma, I made this photograph.
The beautiful picture she's holding is her nursing graduation photo when she was 21.

Without this strong woman, we (5 kids, 8 grandkids and 6 great-grandkids) wouldn't have this. very. house. to make three generations of cherished memories.
I'm not sure that 44 years ago when she immigrated here, she could've dreamed of the life she was building for all of us.

Next week's prompt is self portrait. Easier said than done!
