A Sunday game of chess...

It's moments like these that I treasure and want to store in my memory forever.

  Li'l Bug and Dad playing a Sunday game of chess.

  I viewed from a distance, not wanting to interrupt their concentration.

Feeling gratitude for the milestones that have been made with our youngest.

 Sitting with Dad, playing a game and interacting while concentrating.
  If I haven't shared before, Li'l Bug has Autism.

 A year ago, he would have wanted Dad to sit beside him and only play when he told  him to...
today, he was trying to understand the game and playing with Dad.

 Seeing this warmed my heart and made me smile.
  A wonderful way to spend some quality time together on a Sunday afternoon.

I love this family of mine...I feel so blessed. 

  I hope you too are enjoying your beautiful Sunday day. 

Hugs and blessings,


  1. So sweet-that memory will stay in your heart!
    I would never have guessed that your son has autism and I worked with autistic students during my teaching career.
    The best to you and yours-
    thanks for sharing.

  2. That is so precious, Victoria. What a little cutie your son is. I love those photos and what a wonderful day they spent together. I never learned how to play chess.

  3. What a fabulous series of photos! So touching and, as you said, a real blessing!
    Have a great week

  4. L'il Bug is a smart little guy! How wonderful that he'll spend time with Dad playing Chess and staying focused.
    Great pictures.

  5. What a special blessing...your li'l bug is precious. hugs-Carrie
