"My Grandma Vi is one of the funniest and kindest people you will ever meet," says Thea. "At 92 years of age, she was living on her own, happy as a clam. Recently, however, due to health concerns, we as a family made the decision it was time to move her into assisted living."
It was a tough first day for the whole family, and Grandma Vi was having a hard time adjusting to her new living arrangements. Thankfully, they found a way to lighten the mood.
"While mom talked with Grandma about the challenges that day, I gazed around the room looking at all of our family photos, and feeling a bit nostalgic," she recalls. "Then all of a sudden, I did a double-take and flew out of my chair to look at a photo up close. It was a picture of Grandma and Grandpa (who passed away in '99), and the shirt she was wearing in the photo was the SAME ONE she was wearing at that very moment!"
Her mother burst out laughing, and ran to the closet - where she found the same sweater her grandfather had been wearing in the photo.
"I immediately changed into it, and Grandma, who had been in tears just moments before, saw what we were laughing about and burst into laughter herself."
"This will always my favorite photo because it turned that whole day around and made Grandma smile."
