Back on the Picture Track.....Day 09 – A picture that motivates you to do more (Day 09 A picture of

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Sorry, I've been gone for quite awhile. For better or worse, our youngest daughter enlisted in the Marines last March with a ship date of November 2011. She received her orders on June 15th, for a ship date of June 20!!! WOW! All of a sudden, we were faced with having a grad party (originally scheduled for July 9th) and getting her ready to leave (2-4 months early!!!) and calming our "fears" and "anxiety" and sadness regarding her leaving...........
Now I'm back................
Remember (maybe) that when I started this, I'd found two lists that were slightly different, so I tweaked them some days have two pix. This is one of them.
Okay, this may get a little boring for y'all cuz my favs and my inspirations and my closest's all seem to be the same people.............with slight variations.

KOLTEN. Yep, the picture that motivates me to do more is Kolten, my bubba. Also just lucky to be included is my hubby, Freddy. He, by far, has gotten me thru the most. Now, bear in mind, my MOM is one of my best friends and is always there for me, no matter what. I chose Freddy to go thru life with 30 years ago! We've been thru a lot together. It hasn't always been easy; don't let anyone tell you it is, but he's always there; we always do it together.
So this is a pretty cool picture that covers both "days".
I also noticed on another blog, that the person included the list (and names of the pix) on each I'm gonna do that here too. The nice thing about that is that I can just look at "yesterday" to see what I need to blog about "today".

    Wow Karla, this is a great idea! This is a wonderful way to stay motivated throughout the 30 days. Not only do you stay motivated, but you continue learning about yourself and others. You are truly blessed, and may God continue blessing you and your family.

    You are blessed to have someone in your life. I never got to have that and loneliness is the one thing in life that time always makes worse instead of better.

    Anyway... I started doing your list of 30 in 30 at the beginning of June. I've done it every day and I'm almost done with it now. It's been a lot of fun. I've learned about myself through this. Thanks! I'll look forward to reading yours.

    I hate taking pictures! I would have to take like 15 pictures a day? I take hideous pictures but it works for other people.

    God bless & I will keep your baby in my prayers.....

    Hi! I am also on this picture challenge-maybe a slight variation as well-day 22. I took two small couple day breaks as well-it is a long trip to 30 days, but its lots of fun and really makes you reflect. I am a military mom as well and can relate to your daughters plans. Something that is so hard to get through, but somehow we do! Love your picture and blog today. Have fun with the challenge. Nancy
