she read, she saw...

This is my weekly Friday feature. I send my daughter, who is in interning in D.C. for the summer, a photograph I've taken and she sends me back a quote she feels goes with it. So the image is something I photographed that touched me and the words are something she read that touched her. Hopefully, both pieces will be a bit more inspiring as a result...



"The mighty oak was once a little nut who stood its ground." -Anon.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you on the flip side!

Straight away this image and the quote made me think of the following song by iconic singer/songwriters Paul Kelly and Kev Carmody..

Perfect pairing!! I was just thinking the same this past week as my eldest left for his first year of law school. It seems like just yesterday he was a little acorn!!

I love this picture and quote pairing!

How long will she be in DC? I am going for another visit in November. She goes to law school at UW right? (Or is it Gonzaga?)

Don't worry if your job is small and your rewards are few.
Just remember that the mighty oak was once a nut like you.
