365 Days of Thank You

Left alone

Weekly Photo Challenge:  Abandoned

It was the first day of school and this little angel’s mom couldn’t stay because she had to rush off to work.  The look on her face captured my heart and I was lucky enough to have the camera on my phone ready to snap this picture.  I don’t know what she was thinking about, watching all the other kids with a parent or grandparent helping them to get settled into the new space.

Just a few seconds after I took this the teacher assistant, Mr. Jose, came to her rescue and made sure she was feeling safe and comfortable in her new classroom.  Within several minutes she was in the housekeeping play area making new friends.

Giant Step: Kelly’s Cheesecakes and Cookies


Daily prompt:  What giant step did you take where you hoped your leg wouldn’t break? Was it worth it, were you successful in walking on the moon, or did your leg break? I don't consider myself much of a risk taker, although I imagine every day we get out of bed is something of a … Continue reading Giant Step: Kelly’s Cheesecakes and Cookies
