Irish moments remembered. Nothing like a fine Irish mist.

Irish moments remember. This early morning scene was so still and silent. The peace and tranquility permeated our pours. #ireland #galwayireland #portumna

It’s @kevinkuster announcing today’s theme.
.
Theme: Journey
Tag #jj_forum_2203
.
My family and I are trying to get out of town for Spring break for a little family journey. So far no luck! Flying standby has it’s challenges but, we are hopeful we will be going someplace today. To help me pass the time in the airport, I made today’s theme Journey and used this photo I shot last year at the Cliffs Of Moher in Ireland.
.
Start submitting your photos and I will be back to highlight later.

Are you new to the community? It’s not as confusing as it seems at first. :-) . Here’s the deal.
.
Every morning, NYC time, we make a post announcing our new theme and tag. Your job is to tag images that fit the theme. You can use shots youhave already posted but we really love to see the theme inspire you to find new shots. The @jj_editors, @joshjohnson and I scour the tag and repost our favorite submissions through out the day. Over half a million people might see your pic! Pretty cool stuff.
.
We are ALL about keeping things simple, but in the spirit of our motto, “Create to connect”, we ask that you follow our only “rule”. We call it the 1-2-3 rule. For every 1 image you tag, comment on 2 in the tag and like 3 others.
.
Glad you’re here. Can’t wait to see your shots. Speak up if you have questions or comments. We like to think this is the friendliest place on the Internet.

Keep scrolling community and I will be back to highlights later @kevinkuster

Irish moments remember. Sometimes the view is better after the struggle of the journey.

I once heard a great definition for the meaning of the word hope. HOPE = Hold On Pain Ends.
.
Since becoming a parent I have learned so much about myself, life and how nothing in life is guaranteed. Although we are all encouraged to “pursue happiness,” life can sometimes seem as though it was designed to keep you from the very thing you are encouraged to pursue.
.
I have also learned that being a parent is the hardest job in the world and nothing can prepare you for it. When your child struggles or experiences pain, you want to do everything to lessen the blow or sorrow they are experiencing. Since the day my son came into this world I have always known there would be struggles but, if I am being really honest, I didn’t know how much his struggles would affect me.
.
Since the day the doctor put my son into my arms and said “here is your new born son DAD” I have tried to help him to the best of my abilities. I often fail. I am human. I am flawed. But, I will never stop trying and I will never give up on doing right by him as his dad. It’s my greatest honor to be his father!
.
Recently, my son and I have had a road of hardships and uncertainty. I am not going to sugarcoat it—it’s been really difficult and very painful on many levels. I have shed more then a few tears however, I have HOPE and my faith sustains me.
.
Do to this time of uncertainly, I had to make the difficult decision to not travel to Ireland with Josh and be at the #JJ instameet in Dublin. Words can not express how hard it was for me to not meet my obligations to @irishrail @stpatricksfestival, @esbarchives Ardnacrusha, @jjindublin @hilary_kavanagh and all the very special friends I have made over the past two years in Ireland.
.
Thank you @Joshjohson for all of your support, help and words of encouragement. You are a great listener. You have taught me so much and you are a dear friend to me.
.
I hope everyone will all understand why I had to make this choice and accept my apology. My son needs me right now and my role as his dad is the most important thing I will ever be called to do in life. Sincerely @kevinkuster
