I’ve known my friend, Sherry, for years and have had the privilege of meeting her parents on many occasions. When I recently attended a reception honoring their daughter’s achievement, I noticed they were holding hands across the table.
I asked if I could take a picture of them holding hands. Her parents smiled and agreed. I thought it was so precious and wanted to capture the sweet, tender embrace for Sherry.
Sherry’s parents are her biggest supporters. Their hands have held her, guided her, hugged her, loved her, and clapped for her and her awesome accomplishments.
During her speech, Sherry acknowledged them by expressing she could not have done it without their love and support. Her parents live in another city and made the two and half hour drive to have the opportunity of honoring their daughter.
I snapped the picture, printed two photos and framed them. One for her parents in honor of the love they have for each other. The second for Sherry to have the memory of them attending her award celebration.
Hands are very symbolic, and with your cell phone, it’s easy to capture moments of others holding hands.
Think of the love or friendship that flows between two people holding hands. For example, grandparents and grandchildren, children holding their sibling’s hand, a baby curling their hand around someone’s finger, couples, grown up brothers and sisters, mother and son, father and daughter, cousins, friends regardless of age and the list goes on and on.
A framed photo of two people holding hands is a thoughtful and sentimental gift that will touch someone’s heart.
Nothing in the world compares to the comfort and the security of having someone just hold your hand. – Richelle E. Goodrich
