Just when I thought my vacation was over I ended up with a little detour. So after a short break of bed rest and healing I am back to slowly getting out and shooting for diversion. Who am I kidding sometimes the only thing we can do to feel better is create images to make others happy and to give ourselves satisfaction. So yesterday I played with my favorite little girl and came up with this picture. She makes me smile every time I get my hands on her! I must say after a morning with her I almost forgot how horrible I had been feeling, that is until she went home and I had to make the trek to check in with my doctor……oh well at least I had pictures of the most perfect baby in the world to come home to edit.
Speaking of joy, who can give more unconditional love than those puppies we love and make part of our family. Who else in the world is so happy to see you they bounce up and down like a Yo-yo, even when everyone else would take one look at us and run the other way? Who else believes without a doubt, licks across the face will cure every problem and woe we have? There is something to be said about how a dog loves, without reservation or fear. They love because they can’t help it. No holding back, no fear of looking foolish, no agendas.
and in black and white
Today is a day for saying thank you to the Hero’s in our lives. Those men who sacrificed and poured out their love, time, resources and lives to make us the individuals we are. Now I know not everyone had the best dad in the world, some even have dads who failed miserably. I also know some of the most awesome dads in the world are not biological dads but men who fathered by choice. Some dads reading this may not be able to have contact with those children who own their hearts and today is a heartbreaking day. I know all of this but still it is a day to say I love my daddy. My dad is without a doubt my hero, a role model for my son, a man of dignity and integrity. A man who gives everything he has and ask for nothing in return. I hope when I grow up I can be like him!
Happy Father’s Day to all the men who choose to Father no matter the circumstance.
and to the newest Dad in my life…. everyone can see he has already won her heart.
One of the things I love about Sunday afternoon’s is getting to spend time with those I love. This Sunday was extra special because my parents were able to meet their new Great-Granddaughter. There is no doubt it was love at first sight. So today’s photo is dedicated to family. Always cherish each other even when you don’t always agree or get along because life is so short and you never know when you may not have the chance to say I love you again.
