In other words don’t question the value of a gift – a gift is a gift!
In these strange times, the giving of gifts can be random, with simple acts of kindness the most appreciated
Celebrating Motherhood and Grandmotherhood on Mother’s Day
On this special day I stop and recognise the efforts by my mother, my mother-in-law, and others, in their role as mothers in my life.
Now that my daughters are now mothers themselves, they get to celebrate too. Here are my lovely daughters and their gorgeous babies.
A mother’s love knows no bounds! My best Mother’s Day gifts were their births all those years ago!
You always gain by giving love.Reese Witherspoon
The beauty of an early morning bike ride
This particular early morning was for a photoshoot by the local council and we had to be out riding at 6.30am! It was a freezing cold, frosty and foggy morning but it ended up being a real gift and one I wouldn’t have missed for anything!
Random positive comment
The guy who runs the local camera club, and is a photographer himself, made the following comment on my photos (the ones shown above) which I’d shared on my facebook page – You have an artists eye for a photograph. Good shots. This random unsolicited feedback made me smile – sometimes it’s the little things isn’t it? A real gift!
If you were here with me I’d give you a scone!
A photography lesson from my sister
I really liked an early morning photo I took recently, but didn’t know how to edit it to remove the power lines, so I asked my sister for a quick lesson. We scheduled in a Zoom chat and she talked me through how to do some quick edits and you can see the results below. The photo on the right is the original and the one on the left is the edited version. How much better does it look?
That’s ‘giving’ right there!
Life is a gift and giving life has been my best achievement ever.
Just a few random thoughts for Sunday Stills this week.
Leave me a comment to let me know how you’re going during these strange days. Thanks for your visit.
