REST from GRIEVING









This is part of Chatting at the Sky's Tuesday's Unwrapped. Today's post inspired me to think about a different kind of rest I got recently. In the midst of our purposeful trip to Arlington National Cemetery on September 10th, my husband and I decided to take a couple or ten photos of ourselves in our hotel room...using a mirror. It ended up being the perfect medicine. We got a little rest from our grief. We simply could not get the photos right. First we tried the annoying sideway peace sign. And, then made quite a few unsuccessful attempts to just take a proper photo. OH WELL!

A goofy photo session sounds like the perfect medicine.

laughter is good medicine and when you can find it in the midst of grief or sadness--even better!

I agree with everyone above, Katrina. You've been given a lot to deal with as of late... so good to see a smile on your faces! :)
Hugs,

Your family certainly has had a difficult time lately, though I know that word doesn't even begin to describe it. Great for you to be able to take a few moments of silly in the midst of it all. thanks for sharing that with us.
