Some Highlights of the week....
1)My hubby has been gone a lot lately on business and he is bringing home gifts each time he comes home(my love language) 3 weeks ago it was the entire Twilight book series including a pre-order of the 4th book that comes out at midnight tonight, and last week it was a hoodie, my faves to wear!! and this week it was a new zoom lens for my DSLR camera...I am SO thrilled, I am not a professional photographer by any means but I really enjoy taking pictures of my family and scenery and this is going to make it even more exciting....ahhh...blush, blush...I love that man!!!
2)This week I was asked to post pictures in a local home for seniors in their dining room so that they can enjoy some different scenery so I posted 14 pictures for them in 11x16 in big black frames and it feels like my own mini art gallery display. As I was in there hanging up the photos I was able to talk to a few of the residents and I was so blessed by them, some of the pictures brought back some war memories for them and they were able to share with me, others saw their favorite flowers pictured and wanted them close by 'at their tables' to look at, I am so thankful that what I view as fun and a hobby can be used to bless others.( a few of the shots)
3)The final highlight was being able to participate in a local parade riding on my dad's tractor advertising for my Uncle's business, my kids were able to ride on the trailer with my mom while my dad was driving and myself, my sis and law, a friend and cousin walked along side handing out Yerba (click here to see what it is) tea-bags. I was so thrilled to see my dad with a grin plastered on his face proud-as-punch over his tractor.
This has been a very stressful week and even through it all there are many highlights, I am so blessed to live the life I live and I will choose thankfulness over bitterness and resentment!!
If you made it to the end of this post, thanks! Hope you all have a blessed weekend!!
