Reward Pictured

Carolyn’s Online Magazine


The WordPress photo challenge for February 27, 2015, is reward, which comes in many ways. Below are a few ways I’ve been rewarded.

My biggest reward in life is my family, husband Monte, and children Sandy, and Nolan.

Looking ahead to the gardening season, below are the rewards of my son-in-law Michael’s gardening efforts:

Finally, a late afternoon reward for the day’s work already accomplished.

    There are rewards in the many friends that we make. I was so happy that our friend Sally picked me up and I was able to attend our meeting. It was so very pleasant to be surrounded by friends.
