Day in the Big City…

Filed under: Just Because — Char @ 5:55 am

Texture and color from the big city…mmmmmm.



Girl friends. God knew I needed them.

They understand me. Quite possibly better than I can myself. They push me forward. Watch my back. Ask me to trust them. Don’t flatter…will say the tough truth. Ask me to live with Life. Let me vent. Give me perspective. Tears, anger, laughter, highs and lows…we have shared it. Over the phone, late night McDonald fries, at the park with the kids…we put into words “our issues” and somehow we walk away “all better”. Seriously, these girls are such a significant part of my life.


Ann is the queen of quotes and she shares them and I love’em. So this one ended up in my inbox yesterday…

“Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.” Henry Van Dyke.

And with it were her words, “I am a firm believer in the little things of life. For the little things, are indeed, the big things of life….if we have the eyes to perceive them as such. Rejoice then , for the chance to live.”

So have a super weekend. Snow. Lots of it is in the forecast. Yes! And the Superbowl. Smile.


  1. yes, there we are, indeed, in the big city…clutching our bags from anthropology no less! what a great day to remember! what would we do without one another? i can’t wait to have this picture to hang in my house! i love that my best friend is a fabulous photographer. (wink.)

  2. I had fun with you guys. Not often you get to go to “the guts of it” and walk away with a smile. I treasure you. Thanks for capturing the day, Char.
