I was out running around in the yard, in my pajamas, with my camera before dawn. Could not resist trying to catch the Moon and this Star in the same shot.
Today is bitter sweet for me, I am thinking of my brother J.R. who passed away one month ago today. I think of him each day, my brain does not want to accept the fact that he is gone. I have been looking at photos of us as children, sledding in the snow in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Our favorite place was always the little town of Halfway, Oregon and beautiful Hell’s Canyon on the Oregon, Idaho border.
Today is my birthday and I remember years ago when J.R. lived in Arizona. He called a flower shop here in Arkansas and had a man dressed in a gorilla suit, come to my door with flowers and baloons, to give me a hug and sing Happy Birthday to me. My husband and daughter knew this was going to happen and they took pictures and laughed at my surprise. I said, “Only that crazy J.R. would do something like this.”
It is doubly hard around the holidays to lose someone you love. I have friends and fellow bloggers who have lost loved ones recently and each is suffering in their own way. May God bless you at this sorrowful time.
