It occurred to me this morning as I was sitting here at my dining room table looking around the house and enjoying the sunlight coming through and soaking everything with a warm glow...it occurred to me that with my blog I have started to see everything in a new light.
With a blog you don't want to share negative things, at least not for the most part. Instead you pick beautiful or fun photos. I like to chose those photos that also show real life.
Of course everything is not wonderful in my life but when I think that I should do another post and then start looking for photos I start to see for instance that the breakfast that was made in a hurry for me when my husband was preparing his own food for the day, but was then was too rushed to stay and eat with us, but that breakfast he made me is a beautiful thing. That then helps me to realize that we, as husband and wife, have learned to work along side each other and to overlook so many of those things that will drive you up a wall if you let them.
I wish I could do a side by side comparison of 10 years ago vs. today or even 5 years. It would be amazing and I like to think of how far I have come and we have come as a family.
So for me, my blog is a real place but a place that I can honestly say has helped me see all the little things in a new and positive way and to see that the negative stuff is just a passing necessity to help you grow.
