I better cut this conversation short. Think she's onto me. I'll text you tomorrow.

Photo Hunters - Bird(s)

- Bird(s)

Sitting on a beach in Hawaii this summer, his little guy came by to visit me while I was watching everyone in the water. He was pretty perplexed why I wasn't out there with them. Or maybe he just wanted to know why I wasn't eating anything. He is a red-crested cardinal and he made me smile.

A Miracle of the Heart

Laying awake for hours waiting for it to be time. A bumpy taxi ride. Washed-out muddy streets. A locked metal gate opened before us. A long driveway. Up six steps, we are ushered into the care center living room.

And then this:

My son. The first time I am able to take him in my arms. To kiss him and tell him I love him. We are together. My heart will never be the same.

Thematic Photographic - Leaves Two

Leaving leaves behind this evening. But before we do I have just one more picture to post for Thematic Photographic this week.

Autumn 2007. This was the first fall my baby experienced here in the Land of Enchantment. Can't believe it was two years ago. We went out in the backyard for another first for her - a family photo. We took many pictures that day and this was one of them. This one must have left a more lasting impression on her though, because she talked about it for months and months afterwards..."Remember when we threw those leaves in the air...?"

Thematic Photographic - Leaves

This week Carmi's Thematic Photographic theme has been leaves. I've been mulling over whether to post anything or let it pass.

Then today Carmi, with a picture of fallen leaves, challenged us to shift our focus toward one who might otherwise not be seen or heard. I immediately thought of this photo which fit both challenges.

He is neither the oldest nor the baby. He is a middle child.
Sometimes, that is a difficult place to be.
