In Others’ Words: Unexpected Celebrations

In Others’ Words: Unexpected Celebrations

Our perspective affects our outlook on life. And author Robert Brault’s mindset makes me smile. We all know the traditional, here-they-come-again celebrations. Birthdays. Independence Day.

In Others’ Words: Don’t Overlook Enthusiasm

  My husband and I have become the de facto sports photographers for our youngest daughter’s volleyball teams.  CJ plays volleyball year-round, which means I have thousands of volleyball photos of her and all of her teammates. On average, if her club plays three matches and a cross-over match during a tournament, I come home with a minimum of two thousand photos. I then cull the good ph... Read More »
