[my life, my blessings, my journey]

stream of consciousness

My head is a crazy mess today. For one, I have finally succumbed to the nasty cold that is going around. My head feels like it weighs 38 pounds and I sound like a woman named Madge who smokes 3 packs a day.

Isabel has pink eye. Sweet. We love pink eye. Trying to keep a 3 year old from touching her face and eyes - and washing her hands immediately afterward if she does - is a full time job, people. Seriously. Any bets on when Caroline and Jack get it? It won't be long, I assure you.

I'm taking an amazing photography workshop right now. The tag line is "Turning wannabes into photographers". I'm in the right place. I'm being challenged, encouraged and pushed in ways that I haven't been in a long, long time. It feels really good to be doing something selfish - something that is just for me - and I'm learning so much. I'm "meeting" lots of other aspiring photographers from all across the world and getting a glimpse into their lives is refreshing. Skiing in Switzerland makes for some pretty beautiful photos. Jealous!!

A photo from my "homework" this past week - we worked on exposure and metering. Learned so, so much!

Caroline has been working on her own book this week titled "Cow in the House." It's a masterpiece. She is quite proud of her work. We'll be needing a literary agent in no time, I'm sure.

If this doesn't make you smile, you're crazy. I love Caroline's arm wrapped around his shoulder.

Though I've read this passage dozens of times, I found it really speaking to me this morning: "You shall also be so beautiful and prosperous, a crown of glory and honor in the hand of the Lord." Isaiah 62:3 So amid my self-doubt and shortcomings, I am reminded that I am a daughter of the King. It's humbling. It's amazing. And it's enough.
