If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Mother's Day Bouquet - Day 243

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.  ~Dinah Craik

If you have a mom, 
there is nowhere you are likely to go 
where a prayer has not already been.  ~Robert Brault

 remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.  
They have clung to me all my life.  ~Abraham Lincoln

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.  ~Oprah Winfrey
