About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 2 - 1/2/2011

My mother has been living with me for over 2 years and has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.  I can tell that she has gotten worse since Thanksgiving.  She now struggles with things that used to be so simple. Sometimes taking care of her can be difficult, but then God reminds me what a treasure she is and that it is an honor for me to take care of her.  Sometimes I don't know exactly how we are going to make it through this journey, but when I am weak, God is strong.  And when I don't know what we are going to do, I know that God does.  I am confident that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
