My husband took this picture a few days ago and for some reason I really like it.
Like many of you, I'm sure, all my working life I looked forward to the day I didn't have to get up and go to work. I daydreamed about being home when I was working, of having time to spend with my children, to hang my clothes on the line, and make chokecherry jelly, and to have my windows clean and sparkling. It was my dream. That's the way it was going to be when I could be, God willing, home.
Then I got home, and just about that time I ended up with a little Canon A550 Power Shot in my hand. Shortly after that I was stumbling around on the net and I ran across Daisy Cottage, and then Fabulous Fifi, and then I found Jayne at Journey Through Grace who graciously answered all of my questions about how do I do this blogging thing.
I haven't even started to make chokecherry jelly, my kids grew up, I have a good dryer, and my windows ..........oh, they do get cleaned sometimes. I'm so anxious to find out what's going on with all of you, and take pictures and have a life that I can photograph and journal. My life has become so much richer because of deep friendships with all of you. So you see what I mean? Sometimes life just doesn't turn out the way you planned. It has just got so much more wonderful.
