worth a thousand words
Craig and Cheryl and Emily Beers came to visit recently. We love when friends and family come to see us. Craig and Cheryl and Emily have been faithful San Antonio visitors for some years now, and we enjoy the chance to spend some time with them - share a meal or two, talk and laugh a lot - and they usually manage to make it by the deli for a visit and some lunch.
One of the things Cheryl loves about coming to the deli is the picture wall(s) at the back of the dining area. The walls are covered with photos of friends and family.
There are pictures of the deli staff (past and present), college and high school friends, family members, friends, customers... Not too long ago one of our staff was able to show us all pictures of himself on the wall - when he was eight years old.
There are pictures of friends on their wedding days. There are lots of pictures of nephews and nieces from School Picture Days. We get lots of photo holiday cards that end up on that wall. It's nice to walk by hundreds of smiles on the faces of people we know and love.
We are reminded daily of good times and wonderful people. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then how many words are thousands of pictures worth?
Cheryl loves the photo wall. We all do. And we're already looking forward to more of those holiday cards and school pictures. There's always room for more!
