Echoes

A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls,
hurts himself and screams: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating,
somewhere in the mountain: "AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!"
Curious, he yells: "Who are you?"
He receives the answer: "Who are you?"
And then he screams to the mountain: "I admire you!"
The voice answers: "I admire you!"
Angered at the response, he screams: "Coward!"
He receives the answer: "Coward!"
He looks to his father and asks: "What's going on?"
The father smiles and says: "My son, pay attention."
Again the man screams: "You are a champion!"
The voice answers: "You are a champion!"
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains:
"People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world,
create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team,
improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything,
in all aspects of life;
Life will give you back everything you have given to it."
YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.
IT'S A REFLECTION OF YOU!"

What a cute little baby. The editing is okay. I can do the basics but I'm really freaked out on the layers?? I can lighted out spots but even when you whiten teeth the picture is then saved in a different form?? Not sure how to save the layered edits, the simply one I save back to my picture file no problem. I did not bigger edits and they saved as PSD with this blue icon and then would open up photoshop. It is defiantly a lot to learn and I'm going to get a book on it or take classes. I feel like I have so much to learn. I enjoy the hobby though. Hope your doing well... How is Kaish doing in school everything going well? We are so much better here my husband is away on business tonight second night in a row but I stay up late and do me things so it is okay even though I miss him.
Love ya,
Katie

I do believe this to be true. It's always good to be reminded though! Thanks for the prayers!

That was inspirational indeed! And the photos are always so beautiful.

FYI, Rebeckah, those aren't scratches on my arm...I zoomed in really close, and those are just normal micro wrinkles probably. I had no irritation at all.
