Day 194: The sun keeps us going

We inherited this house plant almost a year ago after Jerod’s aunt’s funeral, which was about a month after our friend Ryan’s funeral, which was a few weeks after Jerod’s grandpa’s funeral, which was just 2 weeks after my aunt’s funeral. It was a rough summer to say the least. Seeing the sunlight hit this funeral plant each day reminds me of all the good days, both behind us and ahead. Relay For Life may be hard tomorrow since it’s the first Relay after my aunt passed away from pancreatic cancer, but I know the sun in shining bright.

The sun shines bright on our green and yellow spotted house plant.

Day 110: Glimmering Light

A couple weeks ago while riding bikes, Jerod and I stumbled across this random sculpture in what looked to be an abandoned field. I don’t carry my DSLR camera on my bike, so I went back yesterday evening to photograph it. According to the forecast, we’re supposed to have rain every day for the next week, so this may be the last glimmer of sunlight you see on the blog for a while.
