Feeling blessed

7 Dec

Mother and son

Can you tell how wonderful my mother-in-law is by her joyous smile?  Or is it in the happy, loving smile of her son?

This picture of the two of them together was the best one I took that day.  I just love it.  I was trying to capture my son cutting down his first tree ‘all by himself’ but there are just so many shots of an 8 year old’s butt  that you can take before you start looking around.  And, I saw these two watching him.  I called them and voila.

This, my friends, is why we have the holidays.

If I’d know I was going to capture magic this way, I’d have made Greg change his shirt.  Heck, we’re not even Broncos fans.  What was he thinking?

But, still, I am blessed.

    Yes, you can see the love between those two, and it’s wonderful. With a mom like that, no wonder he’s such a keeper!

    Very nice :)))

    And he was probably thinking that he doesn’t care if he trashes the Broncos shirt 😉

    You’re right, Phyllis. He was thinking that. Bummer though, when I showed him the picture he said, “Well, it’s good of my mom.” He couldn’t see past the crappy shirt to see that he looked good as well. Oh well.
