Camera Crisis

I took a ton of family photos, and I don't believe anyone else brought their camera out. But my settings were off and all my pictures had movement in them! Photo of my daughter Rachel and boyfriend Loyal. Photo with nephews Dale, Rex and center son RC and Randell. My mountain man, can't even see his dredlocks and my mirror image son who like me just got his glasses at 20. He's followed my heart and it's hurt him also. Can you even see his glasses in the blur. His smile was evident to me and I need that. More than anything life has to offer I need to see my children smile. It makes every little discomfort worthwhile.
After fogging out online, sleeping in front of computer, I was able to grab that second wind and get to some more framing. Had crisis with one print. Glass was non glare and didn't have another piece in same size. After deciding to use it anyway, chipped frame paint...touched that up and while it's wet noticed a cat hair beneath the glass. For some reason it seems that piece wasn't meant to be, but tomorrow when the paint has dried I will remove that.

Oh the joys and tears of motherhood. I know. I always think of the quote "You are only as happy as your saddest child". To me, this is so true. You just want them to be happy. A smile gladdens your entire day.

And oh boy, those framing "blues" sound familiar and usually happen when you are in a hurry, don't they?

It seem so wild to see the boys so grown up, Memories stop back around 10 years ago and that's the way I remember them. good to hear you were all able to make it there to your parents home. That's all we hope for is that the kido's are happy nothing else matters.

Peace my dear friend,
