Weekly Photo Challenge: Against the Odds February 16, 2017 by scillagrace What are the odds of marrying your High School sweetheart and keeping your vows “until parted by death” in the 21st century? What are the odds of having open heart surgery at age 31? What are the odds of having the love you have, the life you have, the family you have, the memories you have? Well, I don’t think the odds mean anything. People don’t live by the numbers. We live by the moment. Don’t you? Against the Odds Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
So true, so true!
I’ve so enjoyed the moments with your family that you share in your blog! I’m a huge fan, you know that. 🙂
I feel that I have come to know your family through your stories and photographs. On FB your conversations with your grownup kids are frank and intelligent, and the love and joy so evident in your family photos always make me smile.
Priscilla – The wedding photo and all the others are so beautiful and moving. May I share your grief and simultaneously give thanks for your family’s love and for Jim’s life? Love, Aunt Sandy
You may indeed, dear Aunt! 🙂 Thank you for joining us!
Oh Scilla! This really moved me. Love surely is strong. Meg
“As strong as death”, right? Indeed.
As strong as a life lived fully?
Deeply touching. That ending, in a form of a question, is so very perfect and a challenging reminder to us. My answer: I try but it’s oh-so-easy to forget in this crazy rush of life in this culture.
I like to be a reminder. Thank you, Victoria. 🙂
Wow! A lot to think about after reading this post. And it makes me grateful for one day at a time.
I’m glad! Gratitude is an excellent attitude! Thanks for your visit.
A great start to my day and a heartwarming take on the challenge. Thank you so much for sharing your story. ❤
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday,
Thanks, Dina! Make today full of moments where you are truly present. 🙂
I’ll do my very best. ❤ 🙂
