He was the one I went to because he was more likely to say yes.
When he was a parent helper for field trips all the kids in my class fought to be in my group.
He let me tongue dip in his beer when I was little.
He taught me how to drive and never flinched once.
He has always put my needs and his families needs ahead of his.
He taught me about Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, the Blues Brothers and Louis Armstrong.
He showed me that helping people is better than talking about helping people.                                                                                             
He was the one that encouraged me to be independent but was there to help pick up the pieces when I fell.
He makes the BEST cup of tea you have ever had.
He’s donated blood over 130 times.
He saved countless lives as a full-time firefighter for over 30 years.
He served his community as a volunteer firefighter for 20 years.


She was the one who taught me unconditional love.
She is one that taught us what family loyalty is and that Blood is always thicker then water.
She took my side when I told her the teacher was picking on me.
She let me lay my head on the shoulder of her fur coat and gave me a finger massage so I’d sit still during mass.
She always tells me I’m beautiful and talented.
She taught me about work ethic and how you have to work hard to get noticed and getting noticed will lead to its own rewards.
She stayed up worrying when I didn’t come home at curfew.
She sent my dad to follow me around and protect me when she suspected I was up to no good.
She compliments my parenting skills and encourages me to keep doing the right thing no matter how hard it can be sometimes.
She comes over and spoils my kids with French Toast breakfasts whenever I’m working out of town.
She is the happiest when she’s with family…. She loves her Grandkids to the moon and back and then to the moon and back again.
She worked full time, made dinners, drove us to Figure Skating and Hockey games in the dead of winter and never complained once.


I’m not sure how I got so lucky or blessed to have these people as my parents.

The letter L is this week’s You Capture topic.   I’m not sure if it’s because Valentines day just passed but whenever I think of something that starts with L; I always think of the word “Love” first.  The picture below represents the letter L in so many ways….

I LOVE that my husband bought me this tree for Valentines day instead of Roses….I’m just not a Rose girl.

The LIGHT in this picture is perfect!  I have been using my front room for a lot of pictures lately because the LIGHT hasn’t failed me once!

This picture makes me so excited for Spring and all the new LIFE spring brings with it.  I love the winter but come March, I’m over it and ready to move on to backyard BBQ’s and the smell of fresh-cut grass.

Check out some other picture representations for the letter L

How strange.  I was practicing metering and this was one of my test shots, later when I read I should be Folding Laundry it was kind of cool to see Red was the theme for this weeks You Capture.

We have a busy weekend coming up,  Cody’s Basketball Tournament starts tonight and then he’s participating in some Jr. B lacrosse conditioning camps.  It was really rewarding when the coach called him personally to make sure he was coming out.   Cody still has another year of Minor Lacrosse before he moves into Jr but he was called up last year and he played his heart out… It looks like that was enough to impress the coaches and organization and he will be playing with them again this year.

Now,  if we could only get him to put as much focus and dedication into his schoolwork.

So, it’s my job to walk the dogs during my lunch hour break.  I call it a job but really it’s not.  It’s one of the few things that get me out of the house during the workday that I enjoy.   My dog’s are not trained, they pull me in all directions like a Saturday Wal-Mart shopper and often I wonder if my shoulder has been dislocated.   They are not well-mannered when they meet other dogs and although they look intimidating, they really just want to play.

Usually I walk them  in the forest at the end of our street.  There is a path that runs right through and when the snow covers the ground we walk off the path and explore.  I let them off the leash and they run around sniffing under trees and bushes for squirrels and Bunnies; I love watching them.   This is by far one fo the highlights of my day so with the fresh snowfall last night, how could I not take my camera.   (Again,  all manual mode :))
