The truth is I don't know where to pick up from where I left off. Do I skip the grief part of my life I have been dealing with and head straight to a picture of the cute shoes I just bought? Do I post about our mini vacation over memorial day? I really don't know. Do I want this blog to be all about grief? No, absolutely not. Do I want it to be real? Yes, of course. The happy moments, the small things are what I want to remember most. But among those moments are trials, big and small. Trials that build character and shape us as we grow... and they should be documented too.
I guess you can say, the small moments I have taken for granted so often are more appreciated than ever. I see the fingerprints of the Lord everywhere I go. Finding the positive in a tough situation isn't always easy, but it's possible. I am figuring it out. Don't get me wrong, I fail, sometimes horribly. But for the most part, I am finding beauty in unexpected places.
