Some of my favorite posts to go back and look at are ones where I simply posted pictures of some of my favorite things and favorite moments. I didn't usually write a long thing to go with it. I just let the pictures speak for themselves.
I haven't done that in a really long time. And, sometimes I get so caught up in the craziness of life, that I forget to look around. I forget to embrace the joy in small things. I forget to be thankful.
And so, in the last couple weeks....as I looked around....and really SAW.....I saw plenty to be thankful for.
So as I loaded these pictures to this post, they loaded in a totally random order. I had planned to give a brief line or two to label the pictures....some are from camping with friends, some from a weekend away with my sister and brother-in-law at the Fingerlakes in NY, some of my boys sorting pumpkin seeds, some of my boys just being silly, etc.
The old me would have agonized over this and would have worked to the point of frustration to fix it, put them in order, and add my labels.
But you know what, it's ok. They still bring me joy.
