A rare image


When I need to know that all is right with the world, I find myself looking at images like this. These little folks who look strangely like me are a constant reminder that my wife and I are two incredibly lucky people.

The only gift I could ever ask for is right here.

Your turn: What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful that my family was together for the holiday and that mum, dad and grandma are still with us.

Hope you had a wonderful day.

My gift is about the same age as your youngest.

I am thankful for him - and for those who love us and honour us and keep us safe.

Well, you definitely wouldn't need a paternity test for that trio. ;) Adorable!

I'm thankful to have a supportive and kind spousal (he's funny too), a roof over my head, food in the house, clothes on my back, a job that pays me what I'm worth (and that I like), two healthy doggies and a loving family to help me when those things are threatened.

That picture right there so clearly demonstrates reasons to be thankful. I, too, am thankful for my kinderlings and all the joy and wonder they bring. And I'm thankful for the consistently good and thought-provoking items you provide here for us all. Happy Hannukah to you and your family, and may your new year be overflowing with blessings.

My kids and granddaughter. My husband.

Your kids are beautiful, Carmi.

Tammy said...

Your children are beautiful!

Right at the moment, I'm thankful that I finally seem to be kicking this horrible case of the flu I managed to catch for Christmas.

And as always, I'm thankful for my wonderful husband (who put up with me when I couldn't move on Christmas!) and my family. :)

Courtney said...

I'm thankful for each day I'm given.

Happy Hanukkah, Carmi.

Michael Manning said...

What a precious photograph, Carmi! Yes, You must be proud! Happy Hanukkah! I just heard a debate on NPR about how Hanukkah is spelled. Funny!

Hope the Season is filled with Laughter and Joy for you and your family!

Sandy said...

Amen. Even without my own two reminders running around, I could understand how images like this warm the soul. Thanks for sharing the reminder.

Happy Hanukkah to you all!

I too am thankful for kids--and for my daughter being able to enjoy Christmas this year with my parents.

Barbara said...

You have beautiful kids Carmi.

I am thankful for my husband, who puts up with me, and for my son, eho looks up to me.

AverageMom said...

I'm thankful for pretty much the same...those two cuties who look so very much like me, but have their own wonderful growing personalities.

Mrs. Fun said...

my family is #1 for sure and my health.


beautiful family, thanks for sharing them with us.

MissMeliss said...

I'm thankful for a husband who loves me and supports my endeavors, and still (after almost eleven years) brings me flowers when he goes grocery shopping.

I'm thankful for the unconditional love I get from my dogs - puppy kisses make everything better.

I'm thankful for family and friends, including the "friends I haven't met yet" whom I only know via the net, who may not always be here in body, but are always with me in spirit.

Sweetness! I am thankful for waking up every morning and knowing my family is all safe and sound. I'm thankful for all the wondeful people in my life, my home, my health, my freedom. I'm thankful for so much, there's no way I could ever do justice to the joy in my heart. (most days, ha!) Hope things are fine, haven't heard from you in awhile!

Carmen said...

Your children have gorgeous eyes!

Deana said...

You've got good looking kids! And they all have such beautiful eyes...I like you am very thankful for my family.

Christine said...

What a great picture! It isn't easy to capture them in a moment like that - and even harder to capture it on film!!

I'm right there with you Carmi. I'm most thankful for my children, and my family and friends. Nothing else matters....

kenju said...

Carmi, they are so beautiful!

I am thankful for my family, my friends, my talents and my good health!

Add to that my blog friends - and my life is complete!

Beanhead said...

Sweet!!
I look to my kids all the time to bring me back to the ground and put me right where I need to be.

lisa said...

Other than my family, I wrote a grant this year and the non-profit was funded as a result. I think it is one of the things I'm most grateful for this year.

puremood said...

Great kiddos! I'm thankful for my salvation, my family... and all He has provided for me.

Wishing you a Happy New Year, Carmi.

Surcie said...

Beautiful eyes. Wow, they do look SO much like you, Carmi!

Sharlene said...

Now there's a photo that will be treasured forever.
