I had a great picture in mind for this challenge. It’s a picture of Bubbles when he was little, having made it through the tube on the playground. He emerged from it feeling victorious, and reached to the sky in joy.
Or at least that’s how I remembered the picture.
I dug it out of my external hard drive this morning and discovered that his expression was a little less triumphant than I remembered. Okay, a lot less triumphant – it looked like he was about to cry.
Well, so much for feeling victorious.
But then I ran across these pictures. When he was little, we used to go apple picking at a local orchard every fall. Most of the trees were too tall for him to reach, but there was this one that had some particularly low-hanging fruit. He was determined to help us pick apples, so he went over and immediately began tugging on a beautiful red apple.
It put up quite a fight, but he was victorious in the end. Triumph never tasted so sweet. 🙂
