This afternoon, after a very busy morning of mass and brunch at Simply Beautiful‘s home, my friend and I found ourselves at Oberweiss for ice cream. Well we did walk off that extra calories we gained by walking around at a store before we decided to have a scoop each of mango and pomegranate sherbet.
The scene between the boy and his grandparents immediately caught my attention. The boy was intense as he tried to outmaneuver his grandfather. The old man was very patient as he explained each time why he made a move, showing the intricacies of the game as the young man was all ears. What a special moment it was for them.
Am a sucker for Norman Rockwell scenes because who doesn’t long for a wholesome family picture nowadays when many families are fragmented. Besides this scene reminds me of my relationship with my grandparents – I was my paternal grandparents’ brat.
This is my third day in the B/W Challenge from Simply Beautiful. I would like to invite Arlene of Dreams and Escapes.
I believe I met Arlene through a mutual blogger friend from another platform – Multiply. I have since lost that friend as she altogether quit blogging I believe but I gained Arlene in her place. Arlene is a very spiritual person and a survivor. She seems to be the best person to lean on when you are down as she is always so positive in her outlook. She is a grandmother to a little boy named Nate, who’s the apple of her eyes.
The rules are simple:
1. Post a black and white photo for five days
2. Invite 5 friends (one each day) to do the same
Let’s welcome Arlene.
