Pure Sweetness

We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives.
Maya Angelou

I cannot help but smile at these sweet little faces that are growing up way too fast.

I love their little expressions.

I love how their smiles come from within.

I love when their fun is captured…

…so that years from now they can remember the fun that was had…

…when they were  young and carefree…

…and playing was expected of them.


I love these moments when they are so caught up in whatever they are doing, that they are completely unaware that they are being captured…

…in all their pure sweetness.

The sweetness…smiles… laughter… hugs & kisses…the absolute priceless things they say…seeing how happy they are…makes our lives being interrupted by them, totally worth the ride.

Hope your Thursday is terrific!

Until next time, hugs & love, Lori

Lori - LOVE the new layout!

And yes, they are pure sweetness. Although Little Lady gets that "look" on her face like a certain grandson over at my place.

I love it.

Well put and told with the perfect photos Lori. Such a good reminder.

I love your new blog updo. Did you do it yourself?

Debbie said...

You know...if I had not seen some of these wonderful photos of your "littles" over and over in your blog, and I had just come here for the first time, I would have thought they were done by a professional photographer and the kids were actors. What beautiful photos and grandchildren you have. You really know....how to capture the most amazing moments in their day. What a very special gift...you are able to show us the deep love you have for them through a gorgeous photo. Through that photo, we are also able to see, in their eyes, the love they have for you too. Ok...so now you got me crying!
