A century difference

This is truly an amazing picture if you realize what you are looking at here. I conduct a bi-monthly Eucharist at the retirement home for some parishioners who live there and can't always make it to church, although the parishioner pictured here usually makes it to church.

This is my daughter who is about 7 weeks old now, and a parishioner who comes to the Wednesday service who is just over 99 years old. She has 15 great grandchildren and is one of the sweetest ladies I know.

If you take a generation to mean 25 years, then my daughter is being held by a surrogate great-great-grandmother, and you can never have too many Great-Great-Grandmas...
