Appreciating Life

I have a lot of Camera Envy. Viewing peoples amazing pics in Blog Land is like going to a Rich Friends house. You love that friend, you admire that house, then you walk away a bit empty. You go home to your shabby diggs, take off your old shoes, and depressingly view the holes in your socks. Then you wonder, why me? Why can't I have a big house and a nice car? I've struggled so hard. Then little moments happen in our lives to let us know that there are moments in life we get to be a part of that are Priceless....

(thank you Becky at Life with Kaishon for encouraging me 
to take pictures no matter what camera I have)

Actress Julia Ormond presented Eustacia Cutler the 2010 Emmy Award she received for portraying her in the movie about her daughter, Temple Grandin... and I was a few feet away!!!! I whipped out my crappy cell phone camera and caught the moment!

What an awesome treat for you!!! I don't care about the camera quality, by the way, I'd rather see pictures than none!!

You know as Luther Vandross and Janet Jackson said "The best things in life are free" and that is so true. You can everything, but have nothing.

I really admire you. :)

Ohhh you were so right Jane....I do LOVE this. Reposting on Facebook right now. IMO it is not the great graphics, sharp image photos that make a blog...it is the heart, and, new friend, yours has the most heart of any I've ever seen. Thanks for sharing.

What a beautiful moment for you. I loved the movie that they made about Temple Grandin. Being there in person it worth more than any picture. ((HUGS))

Hey, at least you got the pics! And maybe someone can show you how to de-fuzz them? I don't know, I'm just as bad with my cellphone cam. It takes the WORST pics evah!

Your right, the pictures we take and the lives we live are our own and should be treasured as such.
