I am Tahasi Massk

Tonight we looked through the books from when our children we small. I marveled at the way that in spite of all that she was doing at the time, she created remembrance art. Photo books of our kids, but they are so much more than just that. She saved our stories. She preserved their words. And tonight we huddled together on the couch turning pages. Piled up on each other so we each could see. And we laughed together, and we grew in love. It was not the first time, and it will not be the last.
