Life unfolds ... some of it here. This blog began as a way to focus on the good things in the midst of a crisis and be a connection to friends and family when it seemed to take all of my time just to weather the storms. It seems to have transformed into a sanctuary of musing and inspiration. Feel free to join me!

Smiles ... More Important Than Anyone Knows
This week has held struggles and smiles ... like most every week, it seems! And as I work with photos of Girl Scouts (on Girl Scout Leaders Day, nonetheless) I see so many moments where adults have brought smiles to girls as they learn and experience and grow.
I am ESPECIALLY thankful this week because the smiles have made the difference in some of the biggest ways to the girl who is the most special to me ... my daughter. It feels like God orchestrated some truly wonderful things from friends old and new to encourage both of us. A few know the struggles, and if you're one who is reading this, you'll be glad to know that the smile you see on her face here was how the week ended and has continued.
Thank you. Thank you to family and to friends and to church leaders and to Girl Scout leaders for bringing those smiles. They are more important than you know!
