A Walk to Remember

I love this photo! My husband & son were walking to to the park one fall afternoon, and the colors were intense and the smell of the leaves, freshly cut grass and the crisp of cold air. It was a perfect day!! The look these two gave each other was priceless. They didn't even know I was there as I got out of work early and surprised them... Again it was a wonderful day!! ;o)

If I was to do this photo over again, today, my husband & son would be about the same height and my son wouldn't be smiling... He is going through that I don't want to smile phase. And he would never hold hands with dad, thats just not "manly". :-)

I kept my layout simple as I want to have the Memory of the "Walk to Remember" and every time I see this photo I feel tears in my eyes how blessed I am! I may not have had the daughters most mom's wish for, but even with a house full of "guys" (including the furry kind), my life is full and I wouldn't trade a moment of it for anything!

Note: I put my journaling on the back of this layout on a note card that pulls from the top.

Relax with Nature

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
