Last week was a tough one for me. It seems that at every turn there was heartache looming on the horizon.
Last week I saw loss, I saw new life, I have been scared to death, and I have felt very unprepared for the future.
My good friends father passed away this week. It is really hard to see people that you care about lose someone they love. I sat through the funeral, while holding my sleeping 2 year old, thinking that each day really is a gift. I am so lucky to have the life and beliefs that I have. I am so thankful for everyone that I know, for they have all touched me in different ways. I sat there thinking that I am not prepared to handle the loss of someone that I love. Death makes you feel so very small. There is something so much bigger than all of us and it is a scary and calming at the same time.
There was a death of a man that I breifly went to school with. When something so bad happens to someone so young it makes life seem not fair. But I believe that everything has to happen for a reason. It is what keeps me going.
And then the "swine flu". Come on now??!!?? I wasn't too worried about it and then the news just wouldn't stop. Then they were closing down schools in Utah and then I started to panic a little. My friend who works at the for the Health Department told me that you shouldn't be worried about the flu as much as you should be worried about having food storage just in case your not able to leave. So after hearing that I came home, and checked my pantry. Bare...
because of our remodel and having no oven for the time being, we had been just flying by the seat of our pants for dinner.
I have been talking about food storage since this time last year. What has my excuse for not having one???? I have no idea. So I found this website.
It is to help you get ready and I am now on a mission. So join me. Let's share ideas..
I am going to put up what I am doing each week on the right-hand side-------------------->
and talk about it once a week. So talk with me, share with me. This scared me enough that I want to be prepared!!
Then in the middle of all of this loss and confusion, I was able to take pics of the Erdei family and their new little girl. And then all the sadness that I was feeling sort of melts away. Just watching a sleeping baby, smelling that new baby smell, gives me a new sense of hope, a new look at life, and I feel better.
And just because I was insanly busy this weekend and I didn't take one pic of my girlies. (and they were being so cute, by the way)
a post just isn't a post without pics so another one of the sweet Erdei family, who by the way just got me 2 more photography jobs!! Yea!!
