patience / wishes



This is embarrassing - these one-sided posts. But here I am with nothing to show and nothing to say either.
"Our patience will achieve more than our force." - Edmund Burke /

i bought a watch today at potter's house, a local thrift store. the battery was dead and i could choose any time i wanted to have on its face forever. two dollars seems a small price to pay for eternal wishes. 11:11, always."

True story: mom posts the blog with a one-sided photo, a little frustrated that she didn't get an image from daughter... again. She wishes she didn't have to remind her to send a photo each day, but she decides that she just needs to be patient with daughter - knows she is busy with school work and has little time for this blog. Maybe once a day is too much to expect. So she's getting ready to turn in for the night and a beep comes on her phone - email coming through. As she is reading the email from her daughter, she looks at the clock, it is 11:11pm. How crazy is that? A smile comes across her face. Goodnight.

This is my favorite so far. Perfect post. Perfect story. Perfect glimpse into who Taylor is, in all her dreamy glory.

I live for moments like this, when the universe is handing out gifts, and smiling when we receive them.

Love this!

PS - I've linked to this on my blog. It's on my left sidebar, under Peeking Elsewhere.

Hope that's okay!

The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
