a christmas haiku moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual.  A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week.  A moment in time I want to capture, to savor and remember.




“This Moment” is a ritual I found on Pamanner's Blog, via Life inspired by the Wee Man adopted from SouleMama.  Check out their blogs, and if you are moved too, please leave a link to your Moment in the comment box below.


I've taken my favorite moment, combined with haiku, for a little something different today.  Hope you enjoy it.
Have a safe, memorable, Merry Christmas!

  19. You know, I've been pondering and yearning for that exploratory spirit of being a child and love that wonder combined with the spirit of Christmas. The photo blends them perfectly. =) Hope you had a very merry Christmas, Cath!

  20. thanks for all the wonderful comments...the toddler is my youngest grandson, 18 months old now and inquisitive about everything. Not many minutes after I took this photo, he pulled the tree over on us both...then startled when I screamed, shoved it back upright. He's a mighty little fortress, my John. :D
