The first camera club meeting of 2019 features the theme “delicate” with my favorite critiquer, Jeff Miller. I’m looking forward to this one.
This year my smile seems a little more forced and I’m actually ready to just to go bed. We’ve had losses before, actually, several years close together, we lost family and it all comes more to the surface at Christmas. I still cry about losing Trinity. I know what you’re probably thinking. She was “just” a cat and it’s been 9 months and I should move on. Her death was such a shock and I just don’t feel “merry.” Or, that is not what Christmas is really about. I should celebrate Jesus and be grateful for salvation and the gift of eternity, and the time I have and had with my family. I guess you can’t fully appreciate the mountain tops if there are no valleys. Continue reading
Well, the snowmageddon turned out to be a lot like the December 2017 snow for us, just with a huge difference in what they were calling for.
2017 they called for about an inch, and we got 10″
2018 they called for a few feet, and we got about 10″ Continue reading
Happy Thanksgiving Y’all
Ideas, I need ideas!
Not everyone wants to hike to find waterfalls, or get up early to see a sunrise. If you’ve got ideas I beg of you please list ’em and keep ’em coming.
Well, it’s a good thing I didn’t realize a cortisone shot was going to be suggested ahead of time! Continue reading
So this sponsorship thing has not really gone like I’d imagined it would. In the almost 2 years since we’ve sponsored Sofia, we have received 2 or 3 fill in the blank letters from her. “My favorite color is brown” kind of thing. I feel I don’t really know her at all and I’m not sure she gets the individual gifts we’ve sent for her in the past. So this year we just did the extra monetary birthday gift and will say an extra prayer for her and her family today on her birthday. I guess I kind of hoped for a relationship of some kind. I hope she knows we think of her often and really does get the letters and gifts.
Maybe it is because she is young or maybe it is because she lives in such a remote area, but we’ll keep sponsoring as long as we are able and will keep her in our prayers.
Do you sponsor a child thru Compassion Child? What is your experience?
