Daily Prompt: Treasure

via Daily Prompt: Treasure

Treasure: as a verb is defined simply as to “keep carefully”. A synonym listed for treasure is the word “cherish”.

Cherish: takes things a little further, “protect and care for (someone) lovingly”.

Today is my Mother’s birthday. I cannot express in mere words how much she means to me, and how much I love her. I treasure her. I cherish her. And then some. As I mentioned so briefly in the post below from 2011, I have been so blessed that God chose my Mother for me. I could have been born anywhere, to anyone. God is good. God doesn’t make mistakes. God’s plan is perfect. God could not have chosen more perfectly than He did. I am eternally thankful for my parents, and today, I wish my Mother the Happiest of Birthdays! I am so thankful for you Mom. It is incalculable to figure just how much I am indebted to you, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Because were I to get to this age and feel I owed you nothing, then that would have been a terrible life thus far. I am so thankful that is not the case. Thank you Mom, for everything. Happy Birthday!

I wrote this simple post in 2011.

Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday Mom! I am glad that God allowed me to be born into our family. I am so glad I got to grow up with you Mom. I am my Mother’s son, and I couldn’t be happier. I hope you have a tremendous birthday and an even better year.

Woods and the Rising Sun

It’s always a treat to be outside to meet the morning sun. The woods are at their best even for an audience of one. #getoutside. #PhotoPoetry. 

The sun comes up on the woods out behind our house. I can hear the woods come to life, while Black Brook rushes through the ravine below me.

Not The Same

Sometimes I forget to stop, and take a good look around. But when I remember to do so, I am hoping to gain depth of perspective, so that I can see more than what I have already seen for myself. And most of the time, it reveals a whole other side, or sides, to the scene, completing a picture in context.

So, last night, at my second Trans-Siberian Orchestra show of the day, I took a clue from the person beside me, and took a picture that I wouldn’t normally think of taking. The result was very cool, I thought. I can only imagine what the scene looks like from atop the massive stage where the band performs.

I have quite a few pictures from the Manchester shows, and I plan to share them over the next week or two. Look for more Trans-Siberian Orchestra content coming soon, right here! Thank you.
