When life gives you.....

lemons, chocolate, snowflakes - you fill in the blank. No lemons here this weekend, but definitely chocolate and snowflakes. So we had chocolate chip cookies (isn't that what you do with chocolate?). As for the snowflakes, enjoyed watching them gently swirl to the ground or cover our car as we drove but steered clear of snowmen and snowball fights.

Yesterday we attended the funeral of our dear friend's mother. It is always sobering to attend these, but also enlightening to learn about the person and their family. I also find that funerals start me thinking about where I'm at in life and evaluating if I'm doing the things I want to do as well as the important things I should be doing. And so this weekend has been a bit of an internal inspection. I don't know that I have everything figured out, but definitely have some new plans. I'm also grateful for the reminder that this life does not end at death and that some day I'll be reunited with loved ones.

Tomorrow I begin a new adventure - an online class called She Art Workshop. I'm so looking forward to this creative experience and rediscovering the artist inside.

Last, in this randomness of random posts, I love taking pictures and I also enjoy inspiring quotes. A few months ago I combined these two loves by adding favorite quotes to photos I'd taken and use them as wallpaper and screen savers on my computer. This one speaks to me today as a focus for the week. Hope you enjoy it!

Dayna's sister-in-law's mother - Jaret's wife. I don't think you've met her but you may have.
