Blues


In contrast to the sentiment in my photographs of the past few days, I'm feeling decidedly melancholy. I had my girls home this weekend - something that happens rarely - and my dad came to be with us too.

Now they've all gone home or are on their way. And I'm feeling the blues.

I voted on Saturday. As I waited for my daughter to finish, I watched the people coming out. Heavy sighs, big grins, stooped posture - the reaction to having finally filled in the circles seemed to be that of relief. I felt the same way.

With that photo, you make the blues gorgeous. Coincidentally, I just now posted about the courage it takes to be sad.

I came over via Peggy Payne who left a note on my friend Four Angels Mama and referenced your blog. That has to be the most beautiful, serene picture I have ever seen(your ocean picture) and I think it would make a beautiful cover for a planner.

Girly girls, I am fully cheered now! It's fabulous to start the day out laughing. Thanks and love to you both (and your sistah too)!

Ness, feel free to print the picture and use it. I often buy dollar store plastic covered planners and put my photos in for the cover. $1 and you have a great conversation piece. Glad you liked it.

You really do capture the beauty of the blues. (I happen to believe there IS some...)

Thank you for sharing it with all of us!
