Sometimes I miss the old days of photography….there was a time when I experienced the magic of watching a photo appear while swishing it around in a chemical solution. It was not so magical having to wait a week to pick up your packet of photos from the local drugstore, however, or waiting for them to come in the mail. But the surprise of what you got was still fun. Now it is still fun and magical to download your photos onto the computer. I don’t always look at what I’m doing as I go when I shoot a whole bunch of photos, I’ll just shoot them off and wait until they appear on the computer to see what I’ve got.
The other day I got a pleasant sense of déjà vu after viewing some of my latest photos of the dogs. This photo popped up on my computer, and as soon as I showed my hubby he knew exactly what I meant.
The photo below has been on a table in our bedroom for years now, it’s always been one of my favorites of Sheba and her brother Moses. They often posed like this….with him lying down and her standing next to him.
I think sometimes that perhaps Luke is channeling his brother Moses from the Rainbow Bridge. I’ve written before about the things that Kobi taught Luke before he left, but Moses passed on months before Luke came home with us. So how else could he know these things would make us smile?
“When playing in the yard, the trees are the perfect place to hang out and stay cool” (we never see the girls doing this).
“It’s OK to lie down and rest every so often, and let the girls do all the work. You can jump up if you need to!”
“Don’t forget to get in the game and give it all you’ve got though!”
And Moses must be whispering in Luke’s ear that it would probably be fun to keep the toys away from his sisters. Moses always gave the ball right to Cricket after he had caught it….with a smooth pass from his mouth to hers so that the ball never even hit the ground. Perhaps Moses’ one regret in life was that he never did just take that toy and run with it and try to keep it away from his sisters!
“Make ’em work for it, little brother!”
I can just see a Golden smile on Moses’ face in heaven, watching his brother enjoy the mischief that he never quite had the nerve to try.
