The past few days have been a bit of a challenge for me… I always get a little down in November and this year with the roof leaking, the car needing fixing, a sad farewell to an allergy inducing kitten, and general tightness of finances, I’ve been a wee bit stressed. OK. At times, I’ve been a downright miserable weepy mess. But today is a new day. I love that every day is a chance to start over, refresh and renew. Today, I take stock of all that I am grateful for:
- For honest roofers who tell me that my roof that does not, in fact, need new shingles. Just a repair that a gracious friend will be doing for me.
- Shooting a new art installation tonight, and two family shoots tomorrow.
- A car that runs better today than it did yesterday (even though I had to pay for that!)
- Being inspired by friends who are starting a new business with women in Uganda. I get to host the Hamilton home party of JustOne and showcase these gorgeous, unique pieces at my place on November 29th. So proud of Sarah and Krista for doing this, and I’m so happy to help in any way I can. The stories of the women that you are partnering with remind me of just how good I’ve got it, and help bring into focus what is truly important.
