This Moment - A weekend ritual. A single photo - no words (or maybe a single sentence)- capturing a moment from the week. Perhaps a simple, special, extraordinary moment. Maybe a moment you want to pause, savor and remember. Maybe something that made you smile or laugh. Maybe a craft you are enjoying.... MAYBE A VALENTINE! Share your 'moment' with us.

This is NOT a photo. I wish it were! This is an email that almost got deleted this morning. You know, a Nigerian email. You would have deleted it too... BUT, read on for our special moment.
"Good day Sir,

This young woman's father was a gifted student of DH's in 1965-6. We brought him to the US to study at the University of Buffalo, later in Florida to complete his degree in Pharmacy.

He was living with us the day our son was born in June 1971.

He sent us photos of his family after his return home. Later he wrote us of his house burning down in a fire and we did not hear from him after that, although we thought of him often.

So this, after 35 years! Life is amazing.

Oh I love a happy reunion, GB! What a nice email (and you're right, I would've almost deleted it, too!).

I am working on photos. This dreary weather has left me uninspired. Maybe tomorrow morning.

I would have deleted the email as well. Glad there was a happy ending.

Does the glass heart count as a Valentine?

How great Marie. Reuniting with old friends is always fun. I've connected with quite a few old friends I'd lost touch with, some from as far back as high school, through Facebook. It's nice to see and hear about their families and what they've been up to.

My "this moment" is a Valentine tree that Isabella and I decorated.

How Nice to get that email Bug. Glad you didn't delete it.

Cute tree Eden. Perfect for Valentine day.

Pretty glass heart V and your norfolk pine sure looks healthy.

We have had very mild temperatures for the past 2 days and so last night we had huge mounds of snow slide off both the garage and the barn roofs. What a noise that was! I spent some back-breaking time removing heavy snow this morning so that I could get my car out. DH did the same for his car. This afternoon we expect a "freeze flash".

We need color!!!!

The Chelone touch: neat, organized, handsome and practical.

I'd love several pairs of scissors for different purposes...all arranged in a spot where they would not walk away mysteriously! The only pair I have that do not travel are a tiny pair shaped like a heron...that I use for my knitting. (They must be too small for others to find)

Splendid Chelone !

RE: This Moment - February 11, 2011

So on Monday I showed you a photo of three small Nigerian kids. I have an update today of the baby boy in the middle. Here he is with his 17 month old son!

We also have a photo of him with his Latvian wife who is gorgeous.

You have no idea what this re-connection means to us- and to them!

Wonderful Bug.

The helebore is pretty too.

RE: This Moment - February 11, 2011

What a picture of happy father and child! Great smiles.

I like the hellebore, too. Just another in a long list of plants that have yet to make it to my garden. All I need is more time...
