The Brenda Photo Challenge (9-4-10) Photo Essay

On my birthday, a couple of years ago, I had been Really missing my Mom and Dad. Mom crossed May 14th, 1996 and Dad crossed October 6th, 2002. I had been given a party complete, with balloons....Finding myself alone, I decided to send them a message....I'd send them a balloon filled with Love. I KNOW they got it because..... They sent Me...a Rainbow!



Brenda of Whats Up Down South was the creator of this Challenge...Thanks Brenda! She has ALSO had internet connection woes for the past week or so, so she may not be able to post Her photos this time...We'll see. Go check anyway! Also, a reminder to go back and check for late commers HERE! By the end of the day, I Always find more people have posted photos...
Here's hoping you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Oh love this photo story.

Janice said...

Wow! That's beautiful! So glad that you were able to capture it all with your camera.
We had a customer one time that let a balloon go to her Mom and attached a card that had our shop info on it. A couple days later, we got a call from someone who had found the balloon about 5 states away.
