He has her eyes

Mine are brown. Chris' are brown,
 and Dylan's eyes are blue.
Everyone wants to know
 where Dylan gets his eyes.
He gets them from his great-grandma, Mable.
My grandmother on my mother's side.


Dylan and Grandma Mable, March 2010

She is full-blooded Lumbee Indian.
She will be 87 years old this year.
She raised 14 children
 and share-cropped tobacco fields
 for most of their childhood.
She is the feistiest woman I know.
At 10 years old,
Dylan is now as tall as she is,
And he has her eyes.

Wow, that is an amazing resemblance with their eyes. Her eyes can tell a story without her even opening her mouth! I love women who have so much life to share and conquer their obstacles with courage! What a blessing to still have her with you.
