A few years ago, I was posting three times a week with words of encouragement and hope. I ended up stopping because I was posting the same words again and again so I was going over the same things.
Today I had a comment on one of those posts. More importantly on one of the images from a 14-year-old girl who told me that it made a difference to her and she realizes that with her flaws, she is beautiful.
When I first saw it was a comment on an old post, I went to recycle it as spam until I read it. It moved me that something I said nearly three years ago has had an effect on someone today. I am glad it helped her. I hope she continues to see the beauty that is inside her.
As it is Valentine’s Day this weekend, what better photo to use that one of roses. I didn’t buy red ones, I bought pink ones as I felt they looked nicer.
I don’t have a garden, and the weather has been a grotty-snotty of a day, plus I may have over done it a bit over the last few days so haven’t been able to get out. This photo is one that I took last year, and although it is not technically a garden, I love the way I managed to capture the blossom falling. It could be looked at as the Garden of Rest I suppose.
This was a difficult shot to take as I had to use guesswork in taking the photo. I had to hold the camera pointing up, looking the lens to see where the poppy was in relation to it, and then take the shot. Needless to say, I have some photos of just a quarter of the flower, focus on the stem, me in the way, and several out of focus. This one didn’t come out too badly though.
