The last day of the 30-30-1 project. It has been fun and challenging, for me at least. This project has definitely expanded my creativity.
This last day we find Zebadiah, Adriana, Zachary, Zayda, and AdaLynn all together. They really enjoy each others companionship but know they will all head in their separate directions soon. Zeb and Adriana tell everyone, “see you later”. Family is everything.
We never know what the future holds. No one is promised tomorrow. Zebadiah says “We should all live life to the fullest. Be humble, kind, generous and never loose faith. Treat others with the same respect as you expect. Don’t try to be someone else, just be yourself. God first, Family before everything else.”
We have not seen the last of Zebadiah Duck. His adventures will continue on so stay tuned and check back often.
Together once more, as they all gaze into the sunset, we wish them well.
One more day of the project and we see more family.
Adriana’s sister, AdaLynn, stops by to meet this dude that Adriana is always talking about. Zebadiah is happy to finally meet her as well. AdaLynn is a yellow rubber duck, but she is anything but typical.
She has done a little of everything, and says there is no reason to stop now! Zeb has heard the stories of adventure in the wilderness, rock climbing, off-roading in a Jeep, you name it and she either has done it or wants to!
She will jump in any water no matter how deep. Some might call her a dare devil, I will just call her adventurous.
Today Zebadiah took Adriana down to the Trinity River in Downtown Dallas. We have had several inches of rain over the last few days and the river has risen over its banks.
In the distance we see a teal rubber duck that resembles Zebadiah’s sister, Zayda. Zeb hasn’t seen his sister in a while now and with anticipation waits to see if it really is her. As she gets closer, Zeb becomes more excited and sure enough it is Zayda. Zeb and Zayda are so happy! They hug and laugh while Adriana has an idea this is Zayda but wonders who this girl is hugging Zeb? Finally he realizes Adriana has never met Zayda and introduces her.
Zayda was the athletic one of the family. You can catch her, if you can, running, cycling, bowling or just about any other sporting event. This evening she was jogging down the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in Dallas.
Today Zebadiah and Adriana found out they are getting to take a plane ride to South Texas. Neither one can remember if they have ever been on a plane, but chances are when they migrated to Texas they did.
We are heading to South Texas for a Church conference. Of course Zeb and Adriana can’t wait to go. They hear the planes fly overhead most everyday while on their walks and in the back yard. They often wonder where are all these people going or where have they been?
Since Zebadiah and Adriana finally met each other, they are almost inseparable. When you see one, the other is not far away.
They have taken many long walks, rubber wing in rubber wing. Waddling across the walkway, they stop to see the yellow wildflowers in the open lots behind the park. Adriana and Zeb are partial to the yellow flowers since many of their friends and relatives in the rubber duck heritage are yellow.
Adriana and Zeb are both glad they share many of the same interests like Family, Friends, Cycling, Antiquing, Traveling, and Food.
We never know what lies ahead in life. Live good, laugh, be kind, go to church, are all things that their mother’s used to say.
Zebadiah saw the pink duck during the Easter Egg hunt Sunday afternoon. Today saw her again and wants to talk to her if he can muster up the nerve. Zeb knows there are more ducks around, but she caught his eye earlier in his life and has been trying to find her ever since.
Her name is Adriana. Zeb finally got up his nerve to talk to her and they hit it off. She was elated as well, because she likes him too! Today they walked around the park behind the house. Zebadiah wanted to show her the wildflowers, clover and the creek. They were not ready to take a dip in the cool water yet, but maybe next time.
Zeb feels like it was meant to be. Adriana is happy she found Zeb too! Everyone has a soulmate. Sometimes they are hard to find.
