snapshots of life

Posted on March 5th, 2014 by mountain girl  |  10 Comments »

David’s Grandma Josie passed away Monday night. In the midst of travel/visitation/funeral plans, I’ve taken a few minutes to notice the simple things around me. Life is a blink, even when you get 94 years of it. Here a few things I captured today on Planet Earth.

This girl who always has so much on her plate

and so many very important ideas

This boy who has to drink out of the smallest possible cup

This cozy sunny sleeping/working loft where we spend so much of our time

These five-finger shoes that I love to work out in (and wave to David with)

This guitar that I’m picking up again after years of enmity

And even when the dishes aren’t done and the house isn’t clean, my kids are loved, my man gets a kiss (but he has to wait till after I brush my teeth), my heart looks toward my Creator in thankfulness, my eyes take in these fleeting splatters of goodness all around me. This life is worth celebrating.

What are the snapshots of your life on the planet today?

    Sorry to hear about your grandma. It’s weird when suddenly time seems to stand still for a little bit, but it’s a good time to reflect on how many things we can be thankful for. Your snapshots are lovely, I can tell you’ve got a very sweet family!

    A nice picture for Great Grandma Josie from Zia….and I’m saying GOOD, GOOD, GOOD that you’re picking up the guitar again!! God wants to use your anointed worshipping to saturate the house and all who live there!! Cash is really starting to get his own “boy” look! Very cute.

    Thought you would be happy about the guitar! And Cash DID have a nice look…until I chopped his hair yesterday. Now I think I might have to get a real stylist to fix it for him. Of course, he’s still cute no matter what. šŸ™‚
