This is a portrait of my great grandmother Jessie. She was born in 1886 and this picture was taken when she was only eighteen. Of all the pictures hanging in my home this one is probably my favorite. I have such wonderful memories of her when I was growing up ~ I remember her with an apron tied around her waist bustling about in the kitchen all the while humming her favorite hymns, snapping beans on the back porch, and rocking me in her favorite chair! I have always felt such a close kinship with her because she and I loved and appreciated the simple things in life. The picture used to hang in my entryway and whenever someone would visit they would always comment (without fail) that they thought I looked a lot like her. Although I don't see it myself, I must admit that since I loved her so much they couldn't have paid me a higher compliment;o)
