another round of giving thanks - for an entire month!

Oops, I forgot to post yesterday despite the fact that I knew this was coming up - chalk it up to an overly stressed brain fart. But anyway, I participated in this last year and had such a wonderful time thinking about all the blessings of my life that I'm thankful for so I'm participating again this year. It's a daily challenge to focus ourselves on the things that we are thankful for, I encourage you to do the same.

To start off with, I'm going to post two things I'm thankful for today because I didn't do it yesterday. So for today I'm thankful for 1. photography and 2. beautiful things to photograph.

 I am thankful for photography because my memory cannot hold all of the things in it that I want to remember; and there are lots, but when I look at a picture I can remember that moment, that feeling or place. Photography is very emotional and powerful for me much like scents. My babies are growing up so quickly and there will come a day when they are grown and gone and I'll have memories and pictures and hopefully will be able to look through them and smile as the tears run down my face looking back at a life well lived and loved.

I'm thankful for beautiful things to photograph because without them life would not be worth living.


  1. Well said. And beautiful pictures too! I was wondering if you were going to do this again. I thought of it last night, and decided I would do a thankful post from time to time this month!

  2. I have so many things the be thankful for how could I not? :-)


So what's the view from your world about that? I'd enjoy hearing it.
