Seeing Beautiful Two ways



As you might remember mom took a few days off in early July she and Dad went to visit Annette, Steve and MacGyver in 
Richmond, Virginia.
Below is a picture of Mom (on the left)  and Annette.
Mom and Annette have been friends for 50 years...they 
met in 9th grade.  A friendship like theirs
is Beautiful and they have had many special Moments.

Mom and Annette have 87 million things in common
especially their love of hummingbirds
These pictures were taken at Louis Ginter Botanical Gardens
in Richmond.  Annette took mom to this
beautiful hummingbird bench...thanks Dad for 
taking this photo.
The botanical gardens had beautiful outdoor art 
Every moment mom turned her head she saw something
beautiful.

Mom told me to see Beautiful you must open your eyes to
new and exciting things...so we are adding one more 
beautiful photo....of Me...now bear in mind 
Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder at any Moment
ARE YOU READY?

HAPPY BAT CAVE DAY 
IT IS I, CAT/BAT WOMAN, MADI 
WITH MY BEST BAT EYES and FANGS

ON READY TO CELEBRATE WITH

  1. MOL, Madi! My human is always impressed by people who have been friends for decades - she doesn't know anybody she knew in school anymore. She ran into a couple of them a few years ago on social media and, well, they just had nothing in common!

    SHE has some friends like that....it's great!

  7. It must be really nice to have such a long lasting friendship. We love those pictures taken at the Botanical Gardens. So very pretty!

    Mommy says the best way to cope in today's world is to look at the positive side of things and not pick at the negative. It's not easy but she tries!

  13. the outdoor decorations are really beautiful, the bench looks like made for a Princess (or a Diva lol). But the most beautiful thing is your mom's friendship with Annette. You need not much friends, if you have one you are blessed. And I'm glad your mom found such a friend.
