The Muffed Target

Welcome to the The Muffed Target

Every Tuesday, my very good friend Thom at Thom's Place 4 Well Whatever hosts The Muffed Target which run by these rules:

"Each Tuesday post a picture which is completely crazy, messed up, with nothing on etc, which normally you would immediately delete. It can be everything, like only shoes instead of the whole person, a blurred building or whatever you want. Then tell us the little story how it happened and what it should have been..."

My Son, My Son...

 My son was an altar server during the Thanksgiving Mass for the canonization of Saint Candida Maria de Jesus, their school's foundress. It was a big event as it was officiated by the Archbishop himself as well as several other priests at the San Pedro Cathedral.

Being the stage mom that I am, I clicked and clicked on my cellphone camera as soon as my son appeared during the entrance march. Of course, since it was a solemn event, I was the only parent who dared to take photos inside the church. After all, that was my son there...

Well, with his back turned as he walked past me...

That's my son alright... I could not get a clear shot so I ran to the front pew.  Here's a clearer shot... of the candle stand he was holding! LOL!

I hope you enjoyed the photos. :D

Well, he's holding the candle stand very nicely -- lol! You need a better quality phone camera if you're going to use it for sneak photo shoots! Luckily, this memory is also printed on your heart.

thom, i've long wanted to join the muffed target team and this was a perfect opportunity. there used to be loads and loads of muffed targets in my collection but most of them ended up in my recycle bin. aaaarrrgghhh... i wish my hand didn't move too much during photo shoots. :D

Bing - such is parenting. I, too, have many shots where the kid and the events just did NOT cooperate!

Thanks for playing!

All my shots would qualify. I'm terrible at photography.

Have a terrific day Bing. Big hug. :)

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
