7 Comments

The Challenge: IN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PICTURE THAT MEANS ILLUMINATION TO YOU.

History is not a burden on the memory but an illumination of the soul. - Lord Acton

History is not a burden on the memory but an illumination of the soul. – Lord Acton

My little man was enjoying one of those favorite childhood activities. As he was coloring his sidewalk chalk masterpiece, the clouds cleared and the sun starting beaming in the late summer sky. It was so bright it was unreal. I wanted to snap a shot of him in action. The light surrounded him and his shadow created a barrier between his being and his artwork.

Yet, it is not “the sun” that brings this picture to life, it’s “my son”. He lights up my life and illuminates my world.

The sun was a welcomed surprise that day but the true radiance was in seizing the moment.

“lights are functional — everyday objects in our rooms and on our streets. Yet lights can be powerful symbols: signs of life, curiosity, and discovery.”

Here are my little musings about life, lessons, laughter and love and how to face adversity in the most light-hearted and sometimes humorous ways possible. When life hands you lemons...do you make lemonade or throw them at people? It is not what is happening but how you respond to it that makes ALL the difference! You can't get anywhere doing the back float, you have to "turn around and swim!" So dive in and come from a swim! Feel free to come up for air and comment here and there! Oh and while you are here floating around, feel free to join the swim team! Hope you can keep up and if not, just "follow".

  5. That is so true, “Yet, it is not “the sun” that brings this picture to life, it’s “my son”. He lights up my life and illuminates my world.” It is the people that means the world to us that brings sunshine to our day. They make us smile even if the sky is grey. You truly captured a beautiful moment.
