The Beauty of LOVE...



for all my children and grand children...


for the planet in all it's glory and beauty it provides everyday...


for talented people who since the internet I have found all over the world.

                                       

for the camera that is teaching me to see the world in a different light...


For me the most important thing in life has been LOVE, to give love in every way possible, to be loved is such a impeccable, magnificent, utterly amazing, truly is the most beautiful feeling in the world, I can not express what it has done and been to my life, not always easy or possible. I strongly believe through my Down Syndrome Twins Son's I was blessed to see life through there eyes. It was without a doubt some remarkable moments they showed me in the most simplest of ways. It wasn't always easy for them to get me to see, but, when I did I understood so much. How important love was in life for everyone and every thing around us even those that are different to our eyes. They brought me closer to God, his beautiful planet, and to believing in miracles that anything was possible with his love. They taught me to be grateful, helpful, to see the oddities as beauty. And that I see in the last photograph, a mother's who is a photograph, who captured photographs (click on the word photographs) of her daughter who is missing a hand due to a disease. It captured my heart more than I thought possible, I have seen some pretty darn beautiful things, but, this is amazing. A mother's love so driven she took photographs to let her daughter know nothing in life was beyond her reach, even with a missing hand. That's love, beyond measure, beyond anything seen in the constant movement, chaotic, scenery of everyday life. The photographs are by far in my top 5 of the most beautifully captured.

Imagine if you woke up one day to a world filled with simply love...what an awesome miracle that would be and all it takes is prayers to change it.

Knitting Blissful Days







This past weekend was filled with so many wonderful things. Labor Day weekend for me is a bit different then most. First of all I get two days of celebrating, one with my daughter and her son, William, who is just an amazing little boy. Then the next day is with my grandson, Brennan, and his dad along with the rest of his family. You see the 31st is a very important date for two reasons, 11 years ago my first grand son, grand child, Brennan was born, a beautiful gift. The second he was born on my birthday, August 31st. On the 30th my daughter comes and gets me we hang out and her gift is dinner anywhere I like. Of course we always go to Bob Evans a wonderful down home style restaurant with excellent food. Actually my daughter worked there from 8th grade to graduation, plus, rarely does she get a chance to eat at Bob Evans. Odd how even on our Birthday, a mothers love for a child is still ahead of herself. I can't express how beautiful it was to spend time with her and William. He is growing away, eating on his own with a tons of teeth and curious doesn't even describe how this little boy just loves to explore. Then there is the 31st my birthday that is shared with a wonderful little guy, Brennan, what a birthday present this little guy was for me. Since his birth we've shared every 31st together, he even spends the night without fail. We mesh so well together it's like we are friends too. The best part of that day is I get to spoil him by taking him out and letting him pick his birthday gifts, it's nice to have a birthday myself that I get to give more than I receive. It's a joyful feeling the best ever. Then on September first I wind down by knitting, I promised myself I would not begin another project until the blanket was done and I am sticking to it, as the blanket grows, and often slowly. I have to say this time this blanket is for me, it's large, oh so soft, and hopefully will be done by Winters days. I think so, it will be nice to cuddle up under it and start a new project.
