Harvey

* * * * *


My sister, Lisa, sent me this photo of the moon and this quote in an email this week. I LOVE this proverb. It is such a sweet thought to imagine.
I love this photo of the moon. My sister and I have always had a love for the moon. It is always something we have shared. When I was little, I used to look up at the moon when we were playing outside and I truly believed that there was, in fact, a man who lived in the moon who turned it on and off. When we were younger, Lisa and I even named the moon. We tried to come up with an old fashioned old man's name and we came up with the name 'Harvey'. So ever since, it has been 'Harvey the moon' to me. I can't tell you how many cards I have given to and received from Lisa with the moon on it and I can't tell you how many little gifts have been exchanged that had something to do with the moon.
When I had my very first camera ever, I always talked about when I would have a really nice camera and my only requirement for it being a REALLY nice camera would be one that was able to take a really awesome photo of the moon.
Anyhow, just some random memories and thoughts.
I love that Eskimo proverb. Thank you for sending it, Lisa. Even though it might not be a true statement, it is nice to believe that our loved ones ARE watching over us and that the times we can feel them around us is their way of telling us that they love us and that they ARE happy.
I hope you are happy, Aaron. I love you...

I love the moon too! We have been so blessed with God's creations. I heard a qoute on tv last night that said I would rather enjoy being near the bird then waste my life wishing I had wings. I too would rather enjoy God's creations than wish my life away. I hope you have that camera now! Btw, I love Aaron jr's new bed! and I am proud of you for donating blood. Every time I go to donate blood they wont let me in CA because of living in the UK... and the whole mad cow disease, how come you can donate blood? Maybe it is different in UT. anyway, I will call you when we get to UTAH, I would love for our boys to meet!

Yesterday morning the moon was still out when Benny pointed up in the sky and said, "ball."
The moon attracts many. It is so neat.

I must admit~ I have always thought that there was something magical about the moon. I love that verse ~ I like to believe that too.

That picture is SO cool. I have never seen anything like it! The proverb goes perfectly with it as well. Thanks for sharing!

Kyle and Ansley are totally obsessed with the moon too! Kyle has been taking pictures of it for a while now. He loves it, but it takes a lot of patience and a steady hand. He just bought a telescope so that he could get a closer look. Harvey? You dorks!!!
