Dear Daughter: Part 8

Dear Daughter(s)-
Though there will surely be times in your life when
things seem glum,
I hope the child-like feelings of being free and happy
in your very real imaginary land
carry you through.
May your resilience be your strength,
and knowing deep within be your wings.
Love, Mom

Autumn can stay

Autumn is my favorite season.
The colors, jeans and sweatshirt weather,
bonfires, comfort food, the smell of the air, the way the sun shines,
crunching through the leaves, even the anticipation of the coming holidays.
I wish it could last for half a year.
But it doesn't.
So, the next best thing to having it actually last that long is to
live it and capture it.
I love to capture the beauty up close.
Seeing the symmetrical and asymmetrical,
the lines and curves,
the gradient of color,
the way every little detail makes the whole beautiful!

A prayer for life

I took this photo yesterday and as I looked at it I just felt like it needed to have
a quote with it.  As I thought about it I knew the prayer I have been saying my whole life
would be perfect.
