In this picture our older daughter is working at the wheel in her weekly pottery class. This week we have already had orchestra & choir concerts...and we'll finish out the week with a brief performance in a children's festival chorus at a local Christmas concert! These things can make our lives busy, but they also make our lives richer and fuller. The skills learned, and relationships built, during all these artistic endeavors are invaluable. So, today I choose not to focus on the busy-ness of our lives...I choose to focus on, and be thankful for, the blessings.
