Braveheart and blueberries...

I was finally able to spend part of the weekend learning some new aspects of photo editing, including watermarking my photos. I am pleased with the results above. My blueberry loving boy would be proud.

I rewrote my last blog post, because I wanted to share this beautiful picture with you all on a separate post. Why? Because this one is for Braveheart. Our dear, sweet boy, whom we love and miss soooo much.

He LOVED blueberries....and birds, but that is another post.  Every time I eat a blueberry, I think of my dear boy. It is one of my favorite memories etched into my heart forever.  He requested them often.  
We are eating our blueberries for you my love!

This picture was taken of Braveheart by a friend, shortly before his transplant in the fall of 2011.

I have been thinking about thoughts of Jesus and God's word permeating every aspect of life. Your memories of B permeate every area of your life because your love for him is so strong. What a beautiful picture that makes for me. We love blueberries at our house too, now when I eat them, I will be reminded of you, Braveheart, deep, deep love and our Savior.

Awe...thanks Beth. That was so true, what you said and I appreciate the way you expressed the love of our son 'permeating' every aspect of our lives...a beautiful picture of Christ's love. Thanks for thinking of our boy and blueberries. :)

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
