Over at Life Rearranged, there's a link party going on. On Fridays, a blogger is encouraged to post their week in pictures - with pictures taken from your cell phone. Since I didn't decide to join this party until Wednesday night, I don't have a picture from everyday. I wasn't intentionally trying to document my week on my phone. If so, I would have taken a picture while we were in Fayetteville, AR, visiting my oldest son, Luke. (smile) But aside from that glaring omission, I was surprised to find that I take quite a few pictures on my phone - almost daily. Or, a picture comes in via text message. Four in my family have iPhones, which have great cameras - that may have something to do with our shutter happiness.
It's so interesting to me how something that wasn't a part of my daily existence 10 years ago is a big part of it now. Which begs the question*, "What technology will be available in the next 10 years that I'm can't even conceive of now?"
Who knows. But I do know that this past week brought some smiles to my soul and my face. I think that's what drew me to participating in this link party. There's a heightened awareness to the beauty and the gift that the everyday is. We really look at something, someone - and we thank our God - not only for the gift, but for the ability to see it, know it, and appreciate it. We thank Him for revealing some part of himself in it.
So, here's a few pics from my week.
Last Saturday, I brought the cake to a baby shower given for my dear friend, Nicole Edgmond. Julie Ledford, of Sunrise Sugar Shack fame, made and decorated this.

|Snapped this pic b/c I typically send this info to Luke, one of David's biggest fans|
Another morning, when I got out of my car at Wood's Express, I was greeted by the sound of an instrument I do not love. But I do admire the spirit of anybody who takes their talent to the streets - especially early in the morning.

|Love our lap dog|
When I took the above picture, I was on my way to take my mom to get her hair done. Every Thursday, she visits Kay's Shady Nook. We then hit a local restaurant for lunch. We call this outing, "Grab Grandma and Grub."

|A little snack always helps the thought process|
Speaking of a little snack, I think that's a perfect way to end a blog post. I'll go enjoy one, and you go enjoy one too.
And don't forget to enjoy the snapshots of your week, with or without your camera.
