“Happy 90th Lois”

“Happy 90th Lois”

“God give me work, till my life shall end
And life, till my work is done.”

I married her youngest daughter twenty-six years ago and have grown to appreciate a loving a caring mother-in-law. Through good times and bad times, she has been a constant example of solid faith and patience. Always ready to help in any way she can.

This short post really does not do justice to what she represents to me, and my family. We are just so happy to have had her in our lives for so many years. So, today we celebrate 90 years of love and caring. 90 years loved.

The wonderful cake pictured above was made by our neighbour, as a centerpiece.

“All your father ever dreamed of for you was to do something you loved in life. He didn’t care about fancy qualifications or fancy clothes or cars, just that you were both happy and fulfilled. He was so excited about your dreams for a career.”

For Andrea, on her Birthday

One of the many joys of photography is the ability to create a gift that can be shared over the miles. In this case, a small bouquet for my youngest daughter who is away at College for her birthday.

Though I will see her this weekend, I wanted to create something for her today. One dilemma I faced today was the arrival of an ice storm in may region which severely limited my ability to get out for new flowers. So, I recycled my previous bouquet, found a suitable stem of Gerbera Daisies, and made this image. A birthday gift, over the miles. With all my love.
