Photohunt: Thankful

The photohunt theme this week is thankful. I am very thankful for my daughter who was born on March 2, 1985.I took the first shot of my daughter when she was a few months old. I took the next shot in 2007 when she was 22, packed up for law school, and ready to hit the road.
I want to thank SabineM for inviting me to participate in Snap2Days with her. It was fun doing Snap2 with Sabine and I'm happy to count her among my friends. I think one of the coolest things about blogging is how you can make friends with people you probably wouldn't have otherwise met. Snap2 is on an indefinite break so we won't have a photohunt post there this week.

Please visit TNChick the host of Photohunters to find other participants.

It's really nice to see what fellow players would come up with the theme we were given. Your daughter is so lovely, I am sure she's thankful you are her mother.

Happy weekend.

I think I'm going to love this week's theme - your daughter is beautiful and I'm sure she is thankful to have you as her mom too.

Liz said...

Definitely something to be thankful for. She looks like you (I'm sure I have seen a photo of you somewhere ... !)

Judith said...

Your commenters are right - I am thankful you're my mom :-) You know, I didn't even realise that my birthday was coming up until I got your card and saw this. February is such a short month.

Liz, Mom and I do look a lot alike (or did when that photo was taken, at least). Thank you for saying so :-)

Theresa said...

sometimes with the state of things these days it is hard to remember to be thankful- but it is always good to be reminded what we are thanful for- your daughter is very lovely. and I am judging how you talk about her, she definitely knows how much you love her.

It is amazing to see so many PH thankful for their families and kids, although not surprising. Great take!
I couldn't just pick one thing though so I went for the whole:)

Dr.John said...

I would mirror juliana in my comment. Your daughter was a cute baby and grew into a lovely lady. Good choice of pictures.

Bengbeng said...

we have a saying in Malaysia, the cookie follows the shape of the mould ( hope my English is correct here? ) so a sweet daughter must have come from a sweet mummy ;)

Have a great weekend Carver

Dragonstar said...

My second daughter has a birthday on March 3rd, but she's 5 years older than yours. The funny thing is that they look a tiny bit alike!
Family is the greatest gift there is.

Patricia said...

Much for which to be thanful, Carver.

I had two March babies. It is one of my favorite months!

Blessings, dear friend!
