A Photo Story

They say a picture speaks a thousand words. Here’s a photo that speaks to me of great joy, although it may say little to you at first.

A perfect evening!

These are some of the shoes worn by all the wonderful family and friends who came together last weekend to celebrate the wedding of my daughter and her longtime boyfriend. They came from all corners of the world, all ages, and a wide range of cultures.

Just looking at this photo speaks of me of vibrant conversations, heart-warming hugs, new friends, old friends, smiles and laughter, good food and drink, and the realization of just how loved my well-travelled daughter and her husband are.

What a blessing to have been a part of this extraordinary evening!

Monday’s Blessings

Last night, as I lay in bed, I was thinking about my blessings. And I noticed that I was smiling. It’s a great way to fall asleep – with a smile on your face!

I got to thinking that’s it’s also a great way to start the week (or the day).

So here are some of my “Monday Blessings”

  • the sun is shining
  • I’m healthy
  • there’s food in my fridge
  • I have money in the bank
  • I had a delicious meal with good friends last night
  • I have a comfortable place to live, with a cosy chair or two
  • there are several intriguing books by the couch
  • and did I mention the sun is shining?

What are some of your Monday Blessings?
