Endless Possibilities: Focus on Life, Week 11

When we got the prompt "endless possibilities", from Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime this week for the Focus on Life Photo Challenge, I immediately thought of children.

I have two grandchildren who are very close. Kya, who will be 21 in June and Christian, who will be 11 in August. Even though they are ten years apart they have always enjoyed each others company.


They are lucky to have two artistic and musical parents, our daughter, Kim and her husband Dave so it stands to reason that they would both love music and love to create.


Unfortunately for us, they live north of Seattle so we don't get to see them as often as we would like. Last year at Easter we were able to take a road trip and drive to see Kim and family and my sister Debbie and her family.

Somehow my grand kids got older but I didn't. We got to see Christian open his Easter Eggs which had prizes inside. Maybe candy, maybe money; endless possibilities.

Kya dyed the back of my hair and she is thinking about studying to be a beautician. She also preformed on the hula hoop for us; endless possibilities.

My son-in-law teaches guitar and plays gigs with his friends when he can get away from his day job. My daughter teaches people to ride and trains horses for a living; endless possibilities.

Before we left to drive home, we got to meet my sister, Debbie's new granddaughter, Addilyn. A life just starting, the possibilities are endless.
Have you thought about your possibilities lately?

      I am so happy you got to go to that retreat. I love retreats and long to go to a bead one. Mine were when I was quilting.
      It is so good to spend time with like minded people.
      Have a happy and productive week.

  5. It's so true that family has endless possibilities. Your family is beautiful!
