On A Side Note...

On a side note, I love people who go out of their way to do nice things. A few weeks ago, I went with my family to the Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival. We spent the day walking through the flowers and trying to get some good pictures of our kids.When the tulips are this colorful and sun is shining, it is probably hard to get a bad picture. This is one of my favorites from the day. She really loves her big brother!

Anyway, I was trying to get some more shots of the kids together and they both lost focus and started to wander away. While I was trying to herd them back, a man approached us and motioned to us to look at his camera. He didn't speak English very well but explained that he had taken a great shot of Anna smelling flowers. He asked us for our email address so he could send us the picture. It turns out he is here in Oregon as a visiting photography professor from China. Long story short, we got an email from him today with this picture attached:

I am in love with this picture and am so thankful that this kind man took the time to edit it and email it to us.  I am also glad that Anna takes time to stop and smell the tulips, cause I was probably nagging her to look at the camera while he was taking this photo. So, today I am very thankful for nice people who do kind things just to make someones day. My goal is to do the same for someone else tomorrow.
