Beautiful Great Grandchild
Doesn't he look like a winter? Fortunately for us, Jet's father is a photographer, and posts pictures on Facebook for us to admire. This little guy has really grown. I don't frequent Facebook often, and usually just browse, but it's a boon to great-grandmas like me, so that we can see these children who live far away. We live in a town where, often, families in close proximity. Great-grandparents, grandparents, mothers & fathers, children, etc., etc. all live in or near the community. That's how life used to be for many. However, we are prey to the logistics of society today - the jobs are far away, and ever evolving. Once my aunt Cindy and uncle Norman moved to Smithfield, Utah and built a home to be near two of their children and families. Within a couple of years, those children had moved away to follow employment opportunities. My aunt and uncle stayed in Smithfield, and both are buried in the Smithfield cemetery, far away from their parents' burial place in northwestern Wyoming. Such is life!
