The Park

On our recent staycation, we spent one beautiful day at a local park. The Middle Geek works in the Church nursery every Sunday and has made no secret about who is his favorite kid there. He was so happy that we were able to meet up with him and his mom, Elizabeth.

I missed the picture of the two of them blowing the seeds off of a dandylion, but of all the pictures I snapped, I really like this one. I think it's because they are standing almost the exact same way, they really are in sync that way.

I like this picture so much, I have been searching for a quote or verse to put with it so I can print it out for the Middle Geek's bedroom. This is where I need you help! I put some quotes I have found but none seem exactly right.

I need Sugggestions!

Here are some I have found:

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter won't mind.
Dr. Seuss

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Buddha

Helen Keller: Quotations about Friendship

What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

Well, you got two of my favorite authors there, Dr. Seuss and Buddha! BTW? Sorry you didn't have a nice Buddhist teacher in your parent-teacher conferences. We, actually, had TWO! In a Catholic school! : )

Got some:
A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair, and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket.

A boy is noise with dirt on it.

Don't live in one moment, live in THE moment. (Pastor Claudia Hall)

Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional.

Silly is you in a natural state, and serious is something you have to do until you can get silly again. (Mike Myers)

Stop and smell the roses before you stop and the roses smell you. (Ulysses McDowell)

There are no small memories with you. (from the movie De-Lovely)

What My Children Have Taught Me: That the greater the consequence of one’s mistake, the better the lesson is learned. The power of trust. How long one minute can be. How much I am loved by my parents. How short one minute can be. That life is truly a miracle to be treasured. (Carrie L. Sharp)

Walk always as children of the light and keep the flame of faith alive in your hearts. (Catholic liturgy)

We may give without loving, but we cannot love without giving.

Life isn’t a problem to be solved, it’s a mystery to be lived.

...and that's all for now! (Please don't quote me on that one. Ha, ha!)

P.S. I love the photo too. :)

Mean Mom said...

How can I follow Elizabeth??

The photo is great. We have one of our 3 boys taken on a beach somewhere, when they were younger. For some reason they, too, are all lined up, facing in the same direction. Like yours, it is a classic.

I'll have to have a think about the quote!

Mean Mom said...

Back again! How about 'Good friends are like stars....You don't always see them, but you know they are always there.'

Bina said...

Wow. That is a beautiful, priceless picture. I think the second quote, by Buddha says it perfectly.
