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 152 - June 1, 2011

Lavender Althea
Today is a cheat day, I'm afraid.  I was busy at work all day today and then, I came home to check the AC (which was not working yesterday), let the dog out, change into jeans, and head to the hospital.  My ex-husband, whom I am still friends with, is have triple to quintuple by-pass surgery tomorrow.  So, taking a pic just totally slipped my mind until I got ready to go to bed.  So, I hope this will do for today.

Tomorrow will be another long day.  Dave has surgery tomorrow, I am supposed to take minutes for a Board meeting (although I do have someone on standby in case I need to head to the hospital), and I have the first meeting of my summer Beth Moore Bible Study called Breaking Free.  I don't know--it might be a little much for one day.  I promise to try to take a pic of something tomorrow.  And, who knows, maybe I'll find something to take a photo of besides a flower.  :-)

Please say a prayer for Dave Kirkland, and continue to remember my mother in your prayers.  Thanks - goodnight!


  1. I have already prayed for you and your Mother.I pray that you will find strength to do what you need to do,but also to know your limits.Nay God be near you.

  2. Praying all goes well, Cheryl.

  3. It's a great picture, very worth of a cheat-day:)
    Hope everything goes well for your family.

  4. Wow! That's definitely a busy day. A cheat day is necessary every once in a while! Hope the all is well with the surgery.

  5. I will definitely pray! This photo is lovely!!

  6. It's understandable that you cheated for this day. There are things that are more important and that we have to attend to rather than taking photo!!! This may be a long overdue well wish for Dave but tell him to get well soon! :)
