My heart is full, and holds much gratitude, for the blessings of opportunity to experience new adventures, in grandmotherhood.
in the simple life I live, some days that is
i explore and look around
last week they caught my eye
and this is what i found..
to nestle in a flower
and sit contently for hours
maybe it was peering eyes of the intruder
that gave reason for hesitation
to leave it’s place of safety
on the high place
of a hollyhock plant…
Little boy on the corner..
The Daily Post weekly photo challenge is Corner..
Through the eyes of a child
Meeting this little boy, was my most recent magical moment. I did not wave a wand and was not magically whisked away. It took planning and preparation,but my heart got filled up and it will carry me, for awhile.
I am linking to the challenge of Magic at the Daily Post..
I recently paid a visit to this visitor’s center on Veteran’s Day. It was my first time there and I was quickly greeted with Oregonian style hospitality. We were in town for the parade and I had about an hour before the parade started. I decided to explore. The street sidewalks were filling up with chairs and people, so I ambled on my way, destination unknown at the time. This window display caught my eye and there I stayed long enough to chat with the gracious ladies that offered me a hot beverage. I was too excited to eat or drink anything at the time, because I wanted to take a few pictures, to capture the gorgeous carousel horse. This horse named Lightning and the fish will eventually be housed in a building that is being constructed. I definitely will go back at another time, so that I can look at the many brochures at my leisure. I highly recommend visiting this Albany, Oregon, visitors center, if you need any kind of information on what to do or where to go while in the area.
