The other side of the fence

These sweethearts came right up for a photo.

The younger, in purple, was carefully watching over the tartan.  She was older and it he seemed to be her son.

Big brown eyes for both. Calm energy, listening as I told them how magnificent they were.

And of course, as always, I got a cheeky tongue!

I was honoured to have been a part of their day.  The younger was engaged in some games with his rival across the fence before we showed up.  There was a lot of stomping and racing going on but it ended in a gentle nose touch across the fence when dad came to settle them down.

My gentle neighbors

This little family warmed my heart.

Quiet and gentle above.  Words of wisdom below.

Mom and dad, or best of friends.

…this little guy was picking fights across the fence but the two above never left his side.

Dad standing by, strong and proud; not knowing how beautiful he is as he watches me take his portrait with curiosity.

Everything can be so simple when you stop to break it down. Protect the ones you love; do not let anyone convince you to be someone you’re not, and above all, love what you have and who you are in the moment. Every moment.
