Life Happens

Life Happens-

life happensAs you and I know, sometimes things don’t work out quite as you planned. That’s life, and often times its unpredictability is what makes it worth living. I recently spent time wondering through our veggie garden with my hubby. I listen closely as he beamed with pride and he pulled back the leaves of plants, cupping his hard working hands around vegetables for me to photograph. We spent happy time together as he described the progress of the potatoes, bell peppers and the squash growing up the trellises he built. Each part of our garden feeds us and others. But it nourishes his soul.
I took so many photos I was concerned I would have a photo heavy blog post. Instead, life happened, the unexpected, unpredictable happened. The camera was mistakenly reset and the photos never made it to the computer. There are no new photos of the garden to share today.
Each vegetable grown in our garden is nurtured and grown with love. Watching him light up when he gives a bag or basket full of vegetables to a friend or family member makes my heart smile, and there are no photos of that to share either. Will anyone be disappointed that I do not share new veggie garden photos today? No. Because, I am sharing something so much better, life.
I will take new photos when the sun is high in the sky.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend sweet bloggy friends and that Life Happens and its unpredictability brings you lots of happy. :-)
