Sarah said...

Yes it would! I was going to say the other night-has your Mum been to the Fens? They are very flat but I am not sure they are like the prairies. Scotland is beautiful.x

Barbara said...

Somehow this lovely shot reminds me of the one with the girl dropping a bloom into the end of a National Guardsman's rifle in the sixties. Hopeful.

Hugs, B

That's one cool photo! I laughed this morning when they asked him on NPR what his daughters said about him winning the Nobel Prize for Peace. He replied, "They said it was great, then that it was the dog's birthday today and they were excited about having a 3-day weekend." LOL! Nothing like kids to keep you grounded. Blessings, sweet Renee!

That is so sweet! The scope between greatness and itty-bitty(ness) is awesome.....great contrast.

Marie S said...

It is isn't it?? The twinkle in her eyes and the smile. She is a gift of love.
I love you too.

Allegra Smith said...

Some times silence speaks so much louder than words can. The look of love and joy in that child's face could fill a tome about learning to share the fragility of a dandelion or that of our own imagined safety when we were children. I feel like that child now. The world is a bit safer because he is here.

Thank you love, I stole the photo to keep it around. Just love it and you.

YayaOrchid said...

Rene, you are loved by all your readers, including myself! :)

C'est une amie gentille.

soulbrush said...

madtexter said...

Baino said...

The more I see of this man, the more I like him . . I just wish he'd crack on an chalk a victory . . health care would be a good start! Haha . . I knew Ces would hate it, there's no converting her!

Woman in a Window said...

I hope with everything that I am that that moment was real and not staged. Oh please, let it be so.

(What's up with cynical me?)

"If you're a good boy, Mr President, I'll give you a biscuit".

Greetings from London.

yoborobo said...

Great pic, Renee! The little kid is just adorable. :) I like that he likes kids. I know it has little to do with world politics, etc. but I don't care. It speaks to something bigger than that. :) Love you - xoxo Pam

Anonymous me said...

It's hard to see which one is enjoying that moment more ... and that's just the way it should be. Renee, sorry I have been so absent of late, my prayers continue daily despite my lack of presence here and elsewhere in "blog-land". I will try to catch up now on what I've missed with you. Lots of love xx Jos

Tessa said...

Says it all, doesn't it. (What is it about blowing bubbles that makes one feels so.........so.....happy? Is it the way they catch the light as they float so languidly, so silently and gracefully into the air?)

I'm not entirely certain what it is that this wonderful man has done to win the Nobel Peace Prize, but I'm sure he will - if you see what I mean.

yoborobo said...

Renee - as my 80 year old ma said to me yesterday, "They should hand it to him for giving hope back to the world." Amen to that, sista! xoxo Pam

Sassy Scribbles said...

oh lovely! cute and lovely! sweet too...where did they get the child to do that???^^ I'm being silly haha...but I like.

xxxooooxxxooo
Sassy.

Rikkij said...

Renee-ok, I'm gonna get pasted for this, but...What if this had been George W in the pic? I hate to see people woozie over a pic of a politician in a tender moment. I'm not a bushie and definetly not a republican but I don't trust any of the scoundrels. I would prefer just a random pic of Bob Smith down the lane with his daughter. Damn I wish I could just play along and oooh and ahhh. Ouch! who threw that?? ~rick

Draffin Bears said...

Awee, that is sweet.
I hope that you are enjoying your weekend.

Hugs
Carolyn xo

mermaid said...

There are some around me who are disappointed in him, but I think winning the Nobel Peace Prize is for his inspiration. He gives us all hope.

LDWatkins said...

Well...it's a precious picture but it is a politician with a baby. Don't get me wrong...I like him but he is a politician and it is staged. But it does feel good.

Sherry Byrum said...

Adorable!

Terrielee said...

How sweet and tender. God bless President Obama and God bless you!
