I am very thankful that my Mom, my sister Brenda and my son Jeremy came to support me for my first gallery display. As my husband and I started our group tour of the photo displays, they snapped pictures of me with my favorite photo. Then I took the next photos of my 2nd and 3rd entries. We went around a wall and there it was – my last submission AND THERE WAS A RIBBON NEXT TO IT! It said Honorable Mention. That was enough for me. My first time. WOW!
I burst out crying because I am an emotional person and hugged everyone while I tried to process that I had won an award. There were so many beautiful, interesting photographs there and I was amazed that I had one something. I can’t begin to describe how the rest of the day has been other than great!
I came home to see a blog post that my daughter-in-law Kiesha had posted earlier today. Pictures of Brandon during his first week of basic training and a sweet pic of my grandson Chance.
I feel like they were here with me today. Phone calls from my sisters Debbi and Judy, my Dad and an email from Ray’s parents rounded out a lovely weekend of family encouragement.
I love my family.
Pictures of fog to share tomorrow
