Now you might think that I would be writing something profound. Some lesson learned from the cut flower. Sorry, nothing that intellectual. Since starting the 365 project this year I’ve just been keeping my eyes open for things that might prove interesting along with trying to catch ordinary moments in our family life. I ended using one of the photos in the 365 layout but I had something better to share later in the week so I didn’t use the dying photo. I told the kids I felt a bit Beast with my dying flowers. Of course they had to point out that his rose actually looked perfect even as it dropped petals.
But if you really need something profound about the photos here’s an idea I came up with while writing this post. Some days I do get weary in well-doing and I feel sort of dried up but doing things that use my creativity often make me feel fresh again. Also, having opportunities to participate in different activities can be refreshing. One such activity took place Monday night. Our church had a fellowship night for the women of the church. It had no plan other than getting to know each other. It was neat because we had women from high school senior to senior member (no age given). Since I spend my time at church working in the nursery it was fun to visit with the grown-ups. It was a very refreshing evening. And this afternoon I head to Vero Beach for a homeschool convention. I will be traveling with an
old long-time friend. I’m looking forward to spending time visiting as we travel. I’ll also be helping out in her booth so I will have a chance to visit with others as they come by.
