This Moment: my parents

2011 May 6

{This Moment}

{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember via Soulemama.

* oh, and a link for your weekend reading from the wise Aldra at Consciously Frugal, speaking to a topic dear to my heart: spend less or earn more?

    When I saw your description over at SouleMama, I was thinking that I would find some cute, frail old people. NOT! Looks like you live in a really great place….

    How lovely! Awesome to see them helping one another over the ditch, jumping with the energy of their grandkids. No wonder you have such a sense of adventure! Have a wonderful Mother’s Day and enjoy those beautiful mountain views.

    oh rachel…i LOVE this!!!!

    my parents are in the process of renovating their house (doin’ it themselves) and my mom sent my photos of her ripping down a wall this week, which just made me swell with pride.

    yay for healthy, active parents!!!

    Well aren’t they just spunky and spry? One should expect no less from parents if yours, I suppose! I hope you’ve had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend thus far!
