Little Things Thursday

I had planned to have something more exciting to post today, but life hit us in the bumper.  We got in a little fender bender this afternoon and it threw a wrench in my plans for getting anything else accomplished.

But we are okay! We just need a new bumper, and that bumper will be paid for by the at fault driver.

As I picked up Gracyn from Youth Group, I saw this little pocket of light and made her go sit in it because I desperately needed something to post for Little Things. And the light was lovely.

Of course she kept looking over my shoulder to see if her friends were watching.  I mean it is embarrassing to have your mom take your photo in front of people. Especially teen type people.

In the end it’s the perfect post because life is a series of little events.  Some of those things we celebrate and others maybe not so much.  But the good and the bad are the make up of life and we gotta take them both.

    She’s such a beauty, and her countenance shows that the beauty is deep inside, too. Thankful your fender bender wasn’t worse and your perspective is good…
