Small Wonders

Posted on December 9, 2011 at 1:20 PM

 

I took this picture of my niece, Sarah, about fifteen years ago, and it's one of my very favorite photographs---a wondrous moment that I was lucky enough to capture. I hope that your days are full of small wonders, and I wish you many more.

        

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year to all my friends and family!

That sweet little girl is getting married next year! My how time flies. (She is still sweet BTW) I am sure that her husband-to-be hopes that she thinks he is as amazing as that chicken!

Happy holidays, everybody! May we all find a wondrous moment such as this that allows us to cut through the stress of daily life and be kids again, even if for a few seconds.

I agree, Denny. Chicken envy could be a potential trouble maker =)

Small wonders is a wonderful phrase.
It includes so much of life, if you are watching and listening
to all that comes your way.
