daydreams and heavy hearts

Wednesday, November 17, 2010

I really wanted to link up to the Daydream theme on Simplicity this week, but couldn't really think of the picture I wanted to post. I joked about posting myself in front of my computer at work. . . because I often do Daydream there (shh...our secret). I thought about taking pictures of my Holiday with Matthew Mead magbookazine because I do dream of a beautiful house, beautifully decorated for the season. I also thought of digging through my archives and finding a picture of the beach, where my worries just wash out to sea. 

However, I decided that since I uploaded these from this weekend I'd post a little preview of The Holley's. Not just because there were so many precious photos, but because I can tell they dream about this little girl everyday and cannot wait to meet her!

I am so happy for them &cannot wait to meet little Maddie. 
They are going to be GREAT parents!
This little girl will be so lucky!


On another note.
My heart has been so heavy lately.
I think the seasonal depression is setting in!
And well yesterday and today...have been a pair of THOSE days. . .
I'm asking for good thoughts, prayers, and positivity.
First, I have a family friend who needs prayers as her family faces a future caring for a child with Spina bifida. Secondly, we are still hopeful for a full recovery of Wesley's grandfather after his car accident. He's getting better but it's still a long road.
&
Lastly, I don't usually talk much about work on the blog, but some days it just consumes everything I think, do, and say. I often feel like I just can't take another day. I cannot hear one more AWFUL thing or my heart will EXPLODE! {in a bad way} Sometimes I just I just do not understand . . .
Looking at all the happiness around my friends and family who are achieving their dreams, becoming parents, checking off successes one after another. I wonder how I've been so lucky? Not that I haven't had my share of tragedy, disappointment, and hard times. BUT I've always felt like there is not just one person but MANY people who truly love and care about me. 
I am truly Thankful and will try my best to never take it for granted!

I know I don't have to say this to you all but love your children everyday and make sure they KNOW that you love them EVERYDAY! . . . even when you want to pull your hair out.

  6. Thanks Guys and Gals!
    Tim- the burst is SOOC. There are edits to the photo mostly contrast/level adjustments.
    Tim & Kel- I will do a post about shooting into the sunlight. Not that I'm an expert =) but hopefully that will help. Look for it in the next week.

Just remember what you're doing is making a difference!

    I will keep you, your family, and friends in my prayers.
