This photo I took last night reminded me of July 2014 when I was all anxious about my son. He was 17 months old and wasn’t walking yet. He just made his first independent step when he was exactly 17 months old. By then everyone’s babies were walking. Mine didn’t. He went pretty much from crawling straight into running. It just shows that
We blossom when we are ready, not when others think we ‘should’.
I was nominated to take part in this photo challenge by wonderful Ula. Although we’ve never met, I feel I’ve known Ula for a long time. Her writing is exquisite and touches something deep inside me. I’d like to nominate Norah Colvin at http://norahcolvin.com/. She is passionate about education and learning, and I love how compassionate her writing is (compassion is the theme of this month on my blog).
The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:
1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!
