There Is One Picture That Never Changes

It has been about 2 years ago that my precious Alex died. Since that time, I have experienced many changes in my life. But the most subtle one just occurred to me a few short weeks ago as I was changing the pictures of our other living grandchildren that we have hanging on our living room wall. My husband pointed out to me that "there is one picture that never changes." I think that I knew it all along, but, I had not been ready to accept it as a reality up until that time.
It makes me sad when I think about how I will never see any physical changes in Alex. I can only imagine what he would look like and what his personality would be like at this point in time, but I have reluctantly learned to accept that harsh reality of life.
The positive side of this is that, while his picture will never change, I will always be his grandma and that will be forever.
