My heart broke today and will never be the same. Miss you always Grandpa

Unexpectedly lost my Grandfather Angelo today which was also my parents anniversary. 

In Loving Memory of Grandpa C,

One night a man had a dream.  He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord.  Across the sky flashed scenes from his life.  For each scene, he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand; one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. 

When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand.  He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.  He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. 

This really bothered him and he questions the Lord bout it.  "Lord, you said that I decided to follow you, you'd walk with me all the way.  But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life, there is only one set of footprints.  I don't understand why when I needed you most you would leave me."

The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you.  During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.:

Macro Water Droplet Tutorial

I have been really wanting to play around with this tutorial that I saw on a super blog called Photoging Mama (waving to Kansas.) Here's my fun water droplet take on her wonderful tips!  Thanks again Kansas!!!


Notes:  Just know that it took me a bunch of tries to get this right! 
Tips:  make sure to center your focal point on the tip of a tape measure or something that you can extend in front of you, while you are behind your camera.    I am still playing with getting even closer and blurring more of the background.  I will post more of my progress later tonight.  Need to run and get the dog to the groomers now.  Have a super day all!  Smiles :)
