29 Dec

One of the first things I do in the morning is go through my Google Reader.  There usually is a post or two that inspires me.  Whether it’s some beautiful images or great words, something will lift my spirits and wake me up.

Today, that post is from the Shutter Sisters and was all about hope for the upcoming year.

And I have hope.  Even when we have steps back, with pain attacks and headaches and chest pain, we are moving forward.

Today, friends and family are moving the furniture to our new apartment.  Today, I get to see my husband for as long as I want when I get off work.  I haven’t seen him since Sunday.

Today, I have hope.

    So glad to hear you get to spend some time together and that you will be settling in an apartment soon. Later this year, after things settle down a bit I hope we can meet for some photography fun!
