This is a little page I made with old pictures of my mom and dad when they were youngsters. They didn't even know each other when these 2 pictures were made. They met when my mom was 18 and Dad was 21. They are, of course, 2 of the sweetest angels now. I had to post this picture so everyone could see them, the little smile on my mom's sweet face and how my dad looked sort of pouty because he was having his picture made again. He was the youngest of 10 and they did take lots of pictures, especially of him, being the baby. My mom's family was very poor and never had money for a camera or pictures so I am SO grateful to have this one that an aunt gave to me. Anyway, these two gave me the values and morals I have today. I had to let you see them, how precious they are.
Well, wouldn't you know, after my purse, all my money and identification was stolen, I was quite upset for a good while, longer than I liked or wanted to be! However, belief has saved me! I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt I would gather up my scattered marbles, get them back where they belonged and forgive the person who stole everything I had in the world. I have done so!!!
Once I actually forgave and could feel that wonderful peace that comes with forgiveness, God has sent me yet another angel!!! I have not yet seen her but I bet she has no wings unless she hides them securely in her clothes so as not to let people know!!! However she surely is an angel if ever there was one!! Someday I want to write more about this. At the moment I am too overwhelmed with gratitude!
Please go look at the wonderful photography of Stephen Baird of Nikon Sniper. It is absolutely amazing!! He can capture with that camera things you can only imagine. I could not believe what I was looking at when I found his blog and began looking at those photographs. What he does is astounding to me. He is a great writer as well as photographer and the titles he gives to the pictures are very creative and at times amusing! this will be a blog you will visit again and again just to see what he has done next!!!
So glad to be back to my old self, aggravating as that may be!!! I have been thrown for a loop many times, been down, we all have - just don't stay there. Life is way too short and we don't want to waste any of it dwelling on what might have been.
You know I have to say it, just something in me, can't help myself ... be sweet!!!!
