Shimmering Hope


A ray of hope, a light

shining oh, so bright.

A gleam upon the stream

floating like a dream.



I hope years from now when I look at these photos, I remember how the sun beamed down on this small stream. I hope I remember that no matter how hard I tried, I could not capture the simplicity and beauty of that moment.


I hope I remember how smart, confident, and independent Harper was at the age of 4.


I hope I remember how content Miller was to throw sticks and leaves into the stream and watch them float away.

I hope these photos will help freeze these memories in time.

I didn't choose a best shot this week. I just couldn't decide between the first and second one.

Beautiful. Sometimes the photograph in your mind is the best one you can take. :) Looks like it was a great day.

Great post. It looks like you had some great family time too. I would call the first shot your best shot. You can see a faint spider web in there. Its such a tranquil shot.

Good golly miss Jen - what a gorgeous moment and what a gorgeous post! Such tranquility and peace...try as we might, that can never be fully captured with a camera and lens.

Lovely post. That bit of sparkle in your second picture is so perfect with your words. :) And her smile is dynamite.
