Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I just wanted start by saying Thanks so much for all the well wishes and
prayers that came our way.. It was much appreciated and you guys are the best.


Well, on with the show my friends..
Here is what I found for the week's Scavenger Hunt..


RELAXING
I caught this little fella sleeping on the job.




INSPIRING PERSON
 I have to say my mom is the most uplifting happy person you
have ever met.  She always has the most positive outlook on life.
Most days you will catch her humming a happy tune and she always has a smile on her face.  
I'm pretty sure her happy attitude about life has rubbed off on me and my sisters.




WRITTEN WORDS
With times being a little sad here lately, I like to
write little reminders for myself.




MEMORIES
Pulled out some old photos, I don't have a lot of photos here in the trailer,
most of them are in storage.  This photo is of my little sister and me and my cousin.
We were all decked out in our Easter garb.




BEST FRIEND
There he is...  My husband, Traveling buddy, Best friend ever. 
While in Oregon we took our bikes out and hit the wonderful trails they have there.


To see all the other entries for SHS you can visit
Ashley's Blog.  Lots of great talent over there.

I do hope you all enjoy your weekend.
And thanks for taking the time to take a look at my photos..

Hugs~

What a wonderful series this is, Linda.
I've thought about you so often after reading you last post. I am so very sorry.

Sending hugs your way. xo.

Susan said...

So sorry for your recent loss. A death of a loved one is always difficult, but I think the unexpected-and one so young-those have a way of ripping you in two even more. Love the pool party. How awesome.
My fave pic this week is your best friend shot, tho' your Mom's cheerful spirit is a close 2nd.
Sending warm healing thoughts your way.

S. Etole said...

That little squirrel lives life trusting. What a gift.

I am at a loss for words after reading your prior post. Too young, too soon. I am so very, very sorry.

Tracy said...

Your nephew has been on my heart all week. I watched that video you posted and his personality just reached out and grabbed me. I'm so sorry for this great loss to your family. It's always especially hard when they're so young. This weeks pictures are wonderful. They're all so personal(minus the squirrel unless he's portraying how you all probably feel right now) :-) I'll be thinking about you and your family and praying for some comfort and peace. Hugs!

Nicki said...

A wonderful collection of shots for this week's hunt.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Love to see your happy family photo, I think you are just like your mom, you always has a happy look on your face!
I will email next!

Great set. It's good you were able to post while still dealing with the recent loss your family suffered. I really liked the Relaxing shot, how cool to capture one actually sleeping like that.
Nice shot too of your hubby for best friend. I also like that your mom is your inspiration too. Same for me.
