This Week Was That Kind of Week.

I’ve had that kind of week. Maybe you’ve had that kind of week. You know, the kind where you can feel so down and sad about certain things and so to compensate, look for just about any and everything to redirect those blues into something beautiful?

Like this gorgeous night in Charleston with sunset skies to cry over and full-moons to marvel?

For cool evenings and delicious dinners on the front porch.

When your heart aches so much for loved ones far away, that simply putting a little collection of pictures together will just have to do.

Happy 1st Birthday, Elena!

But end-of-summer-sale sandals, pumpkin-spiced wall plug-ins, and pretty stationary for lovely little notes help make the details of life lovely.

And those internet articles that make you laugh so loud that others* think you’re crying. Like the one about shopping at  Whole Foods and about my generation’s entitlement issues. (And my others I mean Eleanor, my cat, who is just precious.)

Then there are those funny little quotes and sayings that make me smile and nod my head in agreement:

“To live in this world, you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.” -Mary Oliver

  1. It is not a question of God allowing or not allowing things to happen. It is part of living. Some things we do to ourselves, other things we do to each other. Our Father knows about every bird which falls to the ground, but He does not always prevent it from falling. What are we to learn from this? That our response to what happens is more important than what happens. Here is a mystery: one man’s experience drives him to curse God, while another man’s identical experience drives him to bless God. Your response to what happens is more important than what happens. –Chip Brogden

  2. sweet Shea, your happy places are adorable!! Did you take that photo of the bridge and evening sky? It’s glorious and ethereal. Your pictures of you and your sweet niece is really beautiful. I can’t think of any one luckier than to have you as their Auntie! One day she will cherish those photos when she’s older 🙂 It’s okay to be sad dear girl. Life is so very hard sometimes, a lot of times actually. I have to go to my favorite verse when the Lord says He will bring “beauty out of the ashes” I often ask Him WHEN Lord did you say that beauty part is coming? It’s probably all around us in the little things. When clouds are dark and surrounding us, our eyes can’t see the beauty around us very well. Look skyward and allow the sun to pour it’s rays of light and energy into you. It will strengthen you. Go sit by the ocean on a sunny day for respite and refreshment. Thinking of you each day, and love you very much. Weezie

  3. “I walked a mile with Pleasure
    She chattered all the way;
    But left me none the wiser
    For all she had to say.

    I walked a mile with Sorrow
    And ne’er a word said she;
    But oh, the things I learned from her
    When Sorrow walked with me.”

    Robert Browning Hamilton
