"Marvelous Mondays were created to help me start to look at the positives, rather than the negatives. I started them so I would take a moment each week to take a step back and see what I do have, rather than what I do not. I chose Mondays because who are we kidding...don't we all hate Mondays? We have all lost something or have something missing from our lives. It could be a loved one, a job, your home, your heart...
For me, it was my children, Jaxon, Colin and Courtney who were taken from me when they were way too small. It is also my lack of ability to conceive and carry another child in my womb. The constant pain in my heart is numbing and life altering. I am "trying" (trying being the key word) to be positive and look for "good" in life.
So, today on this Marvelous Monday, won't you join me? What is one thing that you are thankful for? It can be simple or complex, silly or serious, tangible or intangible...it can be anything! If you need some ideas you can check out my other Marvelous Monday posts here. Please join me spread some positiveness by posting and linking (via MckLinky) your "Marvelous Monday" on your blog to mine! To participate, just grab the code for Marvelous Mondays above and add it to your Marvelous Monday post. Then click on the "Click here to enter your link in this Blog Hop" at the bottom of my this Marvelous Monday post. First, you will type in what you want to show up on the MckLinky. For example, I would type in "Three Butterflies and a Monkey. Then in the second box you will type in the web address of your Marvelous Monday post. It is really easy. Now...let's (try to) be positive"
This is actually my first time participating in Marvelous Mondays. Each time it comes around I say I'm gonna do it but I always forget. So I guess I'm giving myself a pat on the back for remembering this time!!
Today I am thankful for my camera, which gives me the ability to document the life of my family. I am thankful I can capture the big and the small moments all with the click of a button. I am glad that I have these moments frozen in time to always look back on-to laugh, to cry, to cherish.
Sometimes it's just nice to sit and look through pictures that have been taken. It's definitely better to take more than not enough, and with my new camera I'm definitely taking more than ever!
