little spectacular moments














'Some people are so much sunshine to the square inch.'

Are you praying for my friend Becca's sweet little Caden?
He opened his eyes on Friday.
Becca said that does not mean anything medically,
but it meant something to her heart.
Thank you for caring.

You are so amazing. Your photos, especially the ones of children, always leave me with a lump in my throat. Mostly a happy, bubbly lump, but sometimes mixed in with poignancy. You capture the everyday in a decidedly NON-everyday manner...

love the looks on their faces...esp the one with the messy face...lovely tree pics too!

Gigi said...

Somehow, I don't know how, but your pictures and your words always take whatever bitterness I have away and leave me with hope.

Beautiful. Simply, beautiful. Thank you.

oh those beautiful children, it's so hard to photograph them they are always moving, I tried today with my nephews and they refused to be photographed, both had their yellow rain boots on backwards, they looked cute as peas! I hope Caden will be okay, I'll say a prayer for him.

Beautiful photos!!! And I love the new look of your blog!

So I saw that first one and thought "That's her beautiful eyes entry--so gorgeous." And then you go and post one. after. another. With no regard whatsoever for hoarding them for tomorrow.

And speaking of eyes, thanks for the Caden update. Yes, praying for him.

Tracy P. said...

Oh yeah, and the trees look like they are trying to spell something. Each so different!

So, so, so precious--every single one.

And omg--is that...a mustache shadow I see on your son?! Off to double check...

Mrs4444 said...

P.S. And yes, I will pray for Caden (and Becca).

Good thing her hair was in little piggy tails or it would be sticky with ice cream for sure. All are wonderful pictures. The very last photo of the baby grabbed my heart and twisted it.

Beautiful post. I love the picture of the girl with the freckles. Freckles make me smile!

I smiled even bigger when I saw the baby, and read that little fighter opened up his eyes. Praying for the family. God is watching over him. I wont pray he gets better, because I am believing in Jesus name he is already healed!

Tamar SB said...

Gorgeous shots - love the little guy in the Phillies shirt (-: Praying for that little man, he is a strong one for sure.

A Cappelli said...

Your work is amazing! Love the little ice cream (pink cupcake?) girl's expressions. You captured her perfectly.

I will keep your friend and her baby in my thoughts.

Adrienne said...

Beautiful collection of summer photos! And such a wonderful quote!

The shots of the little girl eating the ice cream cone are priceless. Such big eyes! That's the way to really enjoy ice cream.

Loves these Becky! They just sing out summer. Yes...I've been saying lots of prayers for Caden. He certainly is such a little fighter.

Martha said...

Laurie Matherne said...

It's hard to write anything about your photos. They are beyond words. But my favorite shots for today would be the ice cream and wide eyes.

Jenny said...

Amazingly beautiful! I love it!

Maddy said...

Still praying for little Caden. Seeing him all hooked up to the medical equipments makes me think how I need to appreciate every single second we have on this earth :)

AudreyO said...

Your photos are great. We had the mini trampoline when my kids were super young and they loved it. They would jump on it for hours and hours.

Unknown Mami said...

I love watching kids eat ice cream cones. There is such determination to get every bite and not lose any. Thank you! Prayers for the little one. I bet the momma was indeed happy to have those precious eyes open.

Looks like summer! Too bad it's almost over. :(
When do the kids go back to school?

Sarah said...

WOW! These are gorgeous! I love them all. Caden is adorable. Praying for sure.

That crew is absolutely bursting with sunshine in every inch!

And to your friend, I say those open eyes do mean something and I will be praying.
