Grandmothers' Hymnal

This is my ggGrandmother Rachels' well-worn
Primitive Baptist hymnal, presented to me by my cousin
Joy at Sunday breakfast last summer in Princeton, WV.  
After biscuits and gravy, we sat around the table talking,
singing, and praying. Joy said my singing reminded her of
the way our Grandmother Hankins sounded. That was music
to my ears, but most especially to my heart. Joy slipped away
from the circle, then reappeared with the little hymn book
pictured here.
