Daily Prompt: Blossom

Flowers are beautiful.  So are you!

Don’t be afraid to “BLOSSOM” where you are planted!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting Pink

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there!

An earlier Mother’s Day.

I was sometimes called a “girly-girl” which I don’t get except I was very slight of frame and quiet.  I didn’t wear ruffles or pink but preferred a book to sports, kittens to dogs and giggling to gossip.

I grew to love pink, ruffles and lace as I got older and I don’t mean as an old lady, but even into my 30’s I grew fond of the romantic look in clothing and decor.

An outdoor picnic. I made my dress and my son’s outfit.


Reflections are all around us daily but I’m reflecting internally about the time in my life when I actually “mothered.”  I am still a mother but am no longer allowed to act like one.  That sucks.

I love Sean’s expression at 3 months.

My son David used to play a little too rough, age 3. At age 10 he broke a foot right before school started.

Reflections of home.


Reflections in nature.

Daily Prompt: A Jolt of Spring at Hidden Lake Gardens

When I saw “Jolt” I immediately thought of the Jolt cola that supposedly they are still making.

Hidden Lake Gardens has become a big dog walking place lately.  Cool as long as you clean up so they don’t ban this practice for everyone.

God Bless Everyone This Easter Season

It was such a beautiful morning out here I decided to make a photo shoot out of my little stroll on the grounds.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road “Not” Taken

For a similar reason as the poem written by Robert Frost.  Fear, the great destroyer of plans, dreams, options, etc.  Doubt is also something that leads us to make wise decisions as well giving us time to rethink everything.  Don’t ever think of fear as a bad thing.  Yes, excessive or unreasonable fear can cripple you but sometimes you need to hold back.  Sometimes fear is that sane part of you when you wish to be reckless.  It can save your life.

For some reason my roads have always been very well thought out and planned but never turn out as I expected.  The roads all seem to lead to dead ends for me but I don’t feel sorry for myself because I have had many blessings in my life.  I believe in the will of God so I don’t question anything I do with good intent.  It appears that something always works against me in my life, but maybe it is working for me.  It is said that God knows what you need even better than you do yourself.  I can safely say I have always been level-headed and actually had a life plan written out much as some create business plans before going into business.  Short-term and long-term goals.  I think many do this.  I wonder how different my life would have been if I had just “winged” it, at least once in a while, instead of being so cautious or anal retentive.  Taking that path where I feared to tread, not fallen and not gotten lost, who knows?
