Peaceful Diversion: Pretty Pictures and Photos

The saying  “Life is what happens to you while you are making other plans”  hit home last week for me and Dave the Builder.  We went from peaceful, easy Sunday to Dave being taken into emergency surgery Monday morning.  All three of the doctors on the case used the word stat, and that is a word that will get your attention real fast.

I’ll take our everyday, boring to most, uneventful life over curveballs and beyond your control situations any day.

Staying strong in faith, in prayer, and in positive attitude is our game plan.

The positive attitude part took a direct hit when our veterinarian called with the sad news that Sir Kitty had taken a turn for the worse, and the end was near for our beloved twelve year old cat.

It was a witch of a week to say the least.

Getting lost in the pretty pictures and photos from social networking sites and shelter magazines is a gorgeous source of peaceful diversion and blog post inspiration.

Posting plays a large role in my normal routine, and at the moment normal and routine is essential.  The situation of late may not be pretty, but these  pictures and photos sure are.
