toes

I have a new header today.  I kind of love it, but I guess it probably doesn't make much sense to anyone other than me.  Ray thought that I had superimposed the foot, but I didn't.  I was trying to take a pretty picture of the keyboard, and Kaybelle stuck her toes in the frame .

I love it because it kind of sums up my life.  Even when I try to make things beautiful and perfect and wonderful, someone or something always comes along and messes it up.

I'm starting to see, however, that sometimes the mess can be beautiful.  Sometimes, the little toenails with chipped pink polish can make the picture even more delightful.

It's all in how I choose to look at things.

I can get frustrated by the constant fingerprints on my walls, or I can be thankful for the little fingers that put them there.  I can get twitchy about the crumbs on my floor, or I can be grateful that God blessed me with 5 little mouths to feed.  And the list could go on and on.

The juxtaposition of the toes in front of the shiny keyboard is a good reminder for me.  Gotta keep perspective.
