A moment of peace and contentment.  From her eyes to his face….a true reflection of a Mama’s love for her child.

Thankful Thursday: dusky light, surprising reflection, lovely shadow

Once again, it’s Thankful Thursday…and once again, I have so much to be thankful for!

Dusky light – I’m thankful for the opportunity to travel and explore. Admiring the beauty of nature in the dusky light, just before the sun sets for the day.

Surprising reflection – I’m thankful for new adventures with my best friend.  Seeing new things together, and enjoying life’s little surprises along the way.

Lovely Shadow – I’m thankful for the time spent with my family…enjoying the fun moments, both in and out of the shadows!

These are just a few of the many things that I am thankful for today.

It’s important to stop…take a moment…and reflect on the good things in life.

Will you join me in counting the blessings on your journey through life?

“The unthankful heart… discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, 
so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!”

Wordless Wednesday: Reflection

Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

She was fascinated by her reflection in the window. It followed her everywhere she went!

Every bob of her head, every smile, every wiggle!

Just like a mirror – it reflected every move, and she loved watching that little girl in the background dance!

Hit the pause button

It can be a very busy world.  At least where I live anyway.

But I really like the idea of just being able to hit the pause button, and sit back and enjoy life in the moment.

I want to be able to soak it up.

Store it away in my memory bank, and save it for a moment, or a day when I need a little boost to take me to the next step.

Pause.  Reflect.  Record.

Remember the pursuit.

Thankful Thursday – 3 gifts striped

Three Gifts Striped

1. A striped candy cane made by the hands of someone I love, my big sister. Every year at Christmas, she would give me a hand-made ornament.  She passed away 10 years a go.  I miss those gifts.  I miss those hands.

Each year, as I hang the ornaments on my tree, I have a quiet moment of reflection as I think about my big sister, and her special gifts, and how much she loved me, and I loved her!

2. Cozy socks that keep my feet nice and warm! Oh how I love a new pair of socks.

Because life is just too short for plain white socks!

3. The blinds on my window. Not nearly as meaningful as the candy cane ornament, but certainly practical, and some times practical is good too.
