Week 7/52

Seriously.jpg

Well, it is week 7 of The 52 Project 2014 and today I have a photograph of my youngest grandson, A. He was born about ten months ago and he has 2 year old twins sisters. In this photo, he looks oh so serious, and I can’t help wondering what he is thinking. He is an easy going and happy boy and generally, he is laughing and smiling about nothing in particular. This photograph, which captures his serious side, is all the more precious.

This is my photo submission for week 6 of The 52 project. I apologize in advance because I have no g’children photos this week. Given that I’ve taken no photos of myself for weeks, I’ve chosen a photo that doesn’t warm my heart like my kids or g’children, but is still near and dear to my heart. For reasons that you will understand in moments, she is like another of my children. If you read my blog, you’ve probably read the story behind this piece, so by all means, feel free to enjoy one of my other posts.

In the interest of brevity, I’ve always yearned to paint and draw but was convinced that I couldn’t do either. In 2013, in spite of my fears, I took my first painting and drawing e-courses. I was seriously hooked! After less than a month of beginning my first drawing class, I drew, collaged and painted the above piece. I look at her whenever I doubt myself and feel that I can’t do something. She reminds me that I must banish the words “I can’t” from my vocabulary, because they only serve to limit the amazing things that I can do.

5/52: The 52 Project

20140202-101114.jpg

I haven’t seen my g’children yet this week, so I am using a slightly older photo. This week, I have a photo of my 2 year old twin g’daughters, L.R. And L.I., and my 7 year old g’daughter, D. The twins love to play with their older cousin, and usually there is non-stop chaos. After much cajoling, I am able to still them for a moment for the photo. There is no time to set up the photo. This is the result. It is clear from the photo that D. is doing her best to hold on to the twins in order to keep them from bolting.

Blessings, Lydia

4/52: The 52 Project

20140125-181838.jpg

This is week 4 of “The 52” project. I’ve blogged about it before, so to avoid rehashing the boring details, I’ll let you read all about it here.

With much gratitude to my beautiful daughter, I have a photograph of one of my favorite little people, my first g’son, B. Although he is almost 2 3/4  years old, I remember his début into the world like it was yesterday. His eyes were open, already curious about his new home and life. Today, he personifies the word “curiosity,” and loves to learn. He is a virtual sponge, learning everything from foreign languages, swimming and painting. He is a kind, loving and compassionate little guy, and I love him dearly. Even though he lives far away in L.A., frequent visits and the magic of  Face Time and Skype, keeps us close. This wee face makes my heart smile.

Blessings, Lydia
