Photography by Miki
As a photographer, I choose what to focus on with my camera. The artist in me strives to be creative and innovative, to capture the essence of what I am photographing and frame it with my unique perspective. l
Today I choose to see life in a similar manner. I am going to zoom in on blessings, gratitude, and things that bring delight. Dim the background lights on what has been, turn the spotlight away from what can be, and beautifully illuminate what is before me today:
...A quiet, slow-paced morning with the children, with a relaxed breakfast and scrumptious cup of tea
...Organizing and arranging our homeschool materials for the next year - we went to a Homeschool store's clearance yard sale yesterday and came back with some awesome deals. Do you remember Spirographs from childhood? I LOVED tracing the colored circles and patterns. We got a set yesterday for a dollar!!!
...An afternoon trip to the library and several discount stores. I am looking forward to a weekend trip with close friends next month at an Inn by the ocean. Sean blessed me with some spending money to get whatever I wanted, so I've got some bargain-hunting to do! I hear a pair of summer sandals calling out to me.
These aren't deep things that will transform the world, but they do affect my little corner of the world, infusing this day with some joyful anticipation and moments of delight. We have some water balloons left over from a science experiment - I think some backyard splashing is in order.
What's on your agenda for today? How can you make today count?
