Focus on You

There were several really nice 'gratitude' photos in this week's gallery but when I got to this one, I found it so touching, I knew I would have to choose it for this week's Focus on You.

This photo was taken by Maria, also known as 'echie52'. If you'll head over to Maria's Flickr photostream, you will be rewarded with some beautiful photos as well as some of the most meaningful and artistic word art anywhere on the net.

Here's what Maria said about her photo:

This is really special for me. My mother has been having health issues and it means so much to me that my husband is right beside me. I am so grateful I was able to capture this moment. It tells such a wonderful story about the man I married.

Maria, your husband is indeed a prince among men. Thank you so much for sharing this special photo with us. The true measure of a good photograph is not what you see with your eyes, but what you see with your heart. Maria's photo truly spoke to my heart and I hope it will speak to yours as well in this season of gratitude.

I have been a huge fan of Maria's work for quite some time, and this photo is no exception. She has a way of putting so much meaning into her photographs and telling the story with only a few words. Thank you, Maria, for not only reminding us to treasure our parents as they grow older but also for sharing this wonderful photo with us here at FOL.
