There is Beauty All Around Us

I suggest playing this song while you read along

This past week, my maternal grandmother passed away. There's been a lot of confusion and sadness surrounding her death. 

Through this mix of emotions, I've been thinking a lot about mother-daughter relationships. 

So much of who I am is a result of my mother's love. Selfless, pure and unwavering love. My mom's joy for life is infectious. She's the type of person that leaves each place that she visits a little better off than when she arrived. 

Something that I admire most about my mother is her appreciation for the beauty of nature. She seems to notice every budding tree and blossoming flower in sight. On several occasions, I've seen her nearly drive off of the road just to point out hanging wisteria.

While my mom is struggling with the loss of her mother, I wanted to share some of the beauty that I've captured with my camera this summer. I always think, "Mom would love this!" when I see things so beautiful that they stop me in my tracks. 

I hope that these images can serve as a reminder that even in the most difficult of times, there is still beauty all around us.


  1. Very well said; my condolences to you and your family.

  2. i'm so sorry for your loss. i pray that you and your family may be overwhelmed with peace. these shots are absolutely stunning, and love that in the midst of everything you are still able to find beauty.

  3. Praying for you guys during this sad time. Beautiful pictures!

  6. The subsequent time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my choice to learn, however I actually thought youd have something attention-grabbing to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could repair in the event you werent too busy in search of attention.
