2013 Day by Day

My year in daily iPhonotos. 

Grab a cup of coffee this may take awhile.:)

What a year this has been for me.  I have continued with my photo a day, reminding me of my best blessings.  Even though I said I was going to stop.  Snowmen, sunrises, family, new friends, new challenges, education, walks on the beach, and time with loved ones. I hope you enjoy a look at some of my favorite days.

Let each day be a new beginning.  Stopping each day to appreciate the wondrous things we are given has been inspiring.  I have grown in peace and happiness.  I wake up knowing I am loved, I rest at night knowing that I am blessed.  All the other things are just things.  Sometimes the tough things are our reminders to smile more, let frustration go and breath deep.  Breath deep: so when the good things arrive you can take them in joyfully.
