#56 Family Skeleton

I say ...'George Bernard Shaw ... right on!' ...why not?!  The past is past, nothing can change it - it's all part of the story now.  The more complex and colourful the story - the more interesting and memorable.

#55 Link To Our Past

The faces in this picture, in fact, are a link to my past. Searching my family tree last year and being taken back eleven generations from my grandchildren, was remarkable.  A long and winding road.

#54 Family Like Friends

Why would I choose a sheep picture for this?  Well ... just got to thinking about a comment that one of my kids made back in the days of our brief foray into sheep farming.  "I think Noah loaded a brother & sister on the Ark." was the comment when it was evident how dense they were at times.

#53 God's Gift

No, you can't choose your family. But they say that everyone who comes into your life is there for a reason. So somebody is choosing for us.

#52 Land of Life

What a wise fellow old Albert was. It IS a beautiful land of life. And it is particularly wonderful to share the joy of it with people you love.

#51 A House Full

Today is an official holiday now ... Family Day.  A good time indeed to pause and say Thank You for this house filled with chaos and happy noise.  Family and/or Friends - a house full of people I love is a joy.

# 50 Chosen

The word of the week, in honour of Family Day tomorrow, is...................  FAMILY.  Gotta love 'em. And I do ;-)

#47 Heaven Upon Earth

Beautiful sunsets on winter evenings look like Heaven to me. Beautiful, soft, gentle - like arms gently wrapped around your soul.  Like Love.

#46 Conditional Love

This kind of goes along with that saying: 'You're only as happy as your saddest child." It is so true that if the people you love are unhappy, you carry that weight. That, I suppose, is Love.

#44 Love is Warm

The word of the week: LOVE.  It's Valentine's Day tomorrow. It was a no-brainer.

#42 Stay Away

Frost on my screen is what this is, not feathers. I coloured it up a bit. I always look to what CAN BE - and frost can be purple, and feathes can be too.

#41 Human Nature

I like this. I always figure it's good to make allowances. This excuse is as good as any.

#40 Small Things

One of these little squares of wire on its own would certainly not keep the donkeys in. But one attached to each other can do the job nicely.  Something else to keep in mind on my journey.

#39 One third

That's really good to know. I've started. I'm one third finished.

#38 Decide

So...for our project, the decision is made and the first step is taken. I need to keep my focus and keep my eye on the mission.  Time will tell.

#37 Starting

The focus on this week is new beginnings - 'starting'.  I've got something in the works that is going to need as much inspiration and motivation as I can possibly muster.  I'll be re-reading these many times over the next few months.

#36 Don't Interrupt

I really like this quote and I really like this picture.  I had fun playing with light and exposure. I like it when my work creates itself.

#35 Success

This sweet little chick used to live in our house. Samson belonged to Ashley & sat on her shoulder for hours, chirping into her ear. The fact that he eventually had to move to the barn and become a regular chicken is still a sore spot with Ash.

#34 Perfection

Well, I sure don't fear perfection. I just don't do it. I am right particular, but I'm no perfectionist.

#33 Joy In Work

This is easy enough to understand. Joy in anything makes your heart and your step lighter. It's the lack of it that can drag us down and make us seem and feel aged.

#32 Gots To Work

These two old knives live in the wall of the stage at our place in Newfoundland.  They've done countless of hours of work over the years and are sticking there, waiting for more.  Something new and fancier would likely not accomplish the job half as good.
