I love the third one!

Mari said...

My favorite is the last one, but it was a tough choice!

FranticMommy said...

I Love the first one. Maybe because it's so snowy here in Mn. Your blog with awesome and photography is breathtaking! Just quick note to say THANK YOU for stopping by my blog on my SITS Day last week. And what a great day it was! I don't do many giveaways (they make me nuts), but I do have a good one on a great kids book that ends tonight so pop by and enter if you get the chance. Hope to see you soon!

beth said...

Thank you so much! We think she is a cutie too, but....we're a little a partial:)

Puna said...

I like them all but perhaps the third one? I like the color in it.

Pam D said...

I love the third one; the intertwined fingers and colorful rings really make it interesting! And lawd, this is HARD for me (picking my own hand photo, I mean). The ones I like the best are just a little blurry, and it's killin' me. pfffft. You go on and win for me, OK? :<)

Rana said...

Baby hands! Baby hands! Although I like the hands intertwined too. Can I pick two?

Kelly said...

I like the 3rd one, too.

Beautiful shot.

Fascinating shot.

The second ring, which looks like some sort of psychedelic acrylic, looks really fun. I remember wearing those as a kid.

Beautiful photo of ordinary things.
What a wonderful quote! Congratulations on your POTW.

steviewren said...

Beautiful photograph. Wonderful quote.

jenbusymom said...

So beautiful and so true!

Land of shimp said...

Mother Teresa and Gandhi really put some of the best words into the world, didn't they? Well, and others, clearly but when I read the quote you selected, I couldn't help think that whenever I see something utterly charming, and very touching in both it's truth and simplicity, it seems half the time it turns out to be a quote from Mother Teresa.

Whenever I see a quote and am stunned by how the truth of it tends to resonate with me? It's usually Gandhi. Some things just speak to us, you know?

I didn't see the other choices, and I have a habit of reading through the comments before I reply...so I was very confused for a bit...but in a nice, intrigued sort of way. It's a lovely, colorful, and cheerful photograph. Well done, and congratulations on your post of the week mention over at Hilary's!

deb said...

congrats on POTW,
and that photo is wow. just. wow.
the quote too.

Jeanie said...
