Black and White Wednesday

On a hot Sunday morning with a flurry of action, this beauty sat quietly and calmly amongst the chaos.

It struck my attention with the realization that this is what it is like some days in my own life if and when I don't let "things" get to me.

 It is possible to maintain a tranquil inner peace while the outer layers are spinning out of control if your mind is centered.

Take a peek at Lisa's for more Black and Whites.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and offering your support! I love when people who have never heard of our type of adoption learn about it. It's such a perfect option for our family and the placing family.

Your pictures are great!
