Zoom Out



And so the camera was stolen

And the aquarium fishes died

And the mugs were broken

And my right arm is in pain

But I won’t zoom out those things.


Today is holiday in here – our 115th Independence Day

I’m free from office work and be with the kiddos

I’m free to prepare their meals

I’m free to savor the moments at home

And I will zoom out these things.


Pork in wild ginger. Yum!

Pork in wild ginger. Yum!


Sweet potato fries. Yum!

Sweet potato fries. Yum!


Banana. Yum!

Banana. Yum!


Sunburst mirror. Not edible! :)

Now I am looking at the big picture

I am just glad for all that I have

That I can live in this moment

Here right now



Clap your hands, all you nations; shout to God with cries of joy. – Psalm 47:1

    Sweet spoon! Thinking of you with love and joy and praying with your kiddos, for healing. You have such a beautiful heart for Him and your family! You bless me! God bless you bunches!

      You love like no other Debbie, thank you so much! In a few days I will be healed. And the scar won’t stop the arm from functioning well.

      I missed you and several others in your space! 🙂

      The best times of my life are the accumulated simple pleasures of living in the moment most especially if it involves the kiddos!

      Surely you miss those moments too when you have young cuties. Hugggggs to you Theresa 🙂
