I took such care with this weed. I wanted to get close. I was concerned about every step I took toward it. It seems that the wind always blows when I want to do outside macro work, so I approached my subject expecting wind at any moment! The wind never came and I was able to hand hold and focus on just the spot of interest.
I have the honor of sharing a home with a little person whose heart is just as fragile as today's subject. However, I don't always approach that little person with the same care and thoughtfulness. Sometimes I'm tired or distracted and my words are careless or my actions downright rude! This image will serve as a reminder to be more mindful of how I interact with those I profess to love. To be more gentle with tender hearts.
