Still no desktop computer so it's a grainy view for here. And that statement has me thinking about the last couple of weeks.
A grainy view.
That's all I really provide here anyway. It's true that usually the actual photos themselves are clear and sharp. (well most of the time) But I get the powerful position of editing exactly what . . . and what does not . . . appear here.
And with that powerful editing capability comes the ability to make our lives, my children's lives, appear to be flawless. One perfectly beautiful dream after the next. Almost as if the hurried days of getting to and from school, spreading homework across the kitchen table, taking the dogs out yet again in the freezing cold cause they are barking like they gotta go, bickering over the fairness of who did what first and whether or not it's fair, having to pick up rooms, clean up toys, make beds or clear the table don't exist.
For those things do. And many others.
But here it is with gratitude that I take time to notice the beautiful. The dreamy-ness. The perfectness that is our life.
