Really, this week was filled with a lot of things – in fact, way too many things.
- Monday was spent administering college final exams and grading until the wee hours of the night.
- Tuesday afternoon my daughter got sick.
- And Wednesday – I got sick.
As I mentally recapped my week, I began thinking how there wasn’t that much that I wanted to photographically remember about the week. Then I reviewed some of the photos I shot on my iPhone and surprisingly realized that we actually did a lot of good things over the week too.
Often I forget the good times when faced with a couple days of unfortunate events.
I am the first to say that photos – don’t tell the whole story. My family, we struggle and have bad moments just as much as the next. I often talk about our struggles in posts that I categorize under “Things I’d like to remember.”
Yet my busy week posts are like my electronic scrapbook of the moments I cherish. They represent our weekly highlights NOT our occasional shadows. So here are our week’s highlights in one place:
most of our Christmas cards out.
We spent evenings hanging out with our dog,
looking at our tree trimmings
and smiling at the stockings ready for Santa.
We baked Christmas goodies,
filled our advent calendar,
went to fancy holiday parties,
and wrapped, and wrapped, and wrapped some more.
Not my normal Busy Week post – yet definitely worth remembering… especially to help shed some light on the shadows. Sometimes we all need to remember to shine a light on our shadowy memories.
In fact, the only way to fight the shadows is with light. Right?
