My mom’s scan showed that she has a few new tumors today. Stage 4 lung cancer has brought us to our knees time and time again over this past year. Each time, God renews our hearts and minds with his overwhelming peace. 🖤
. . .
As mom and I cried and prayed together, a tree in the backyard was blooming with color and tiny blooms. I clipped a bit of this, a bit of that, added some trader joe’s ranuncs, and created this arrangement that is an overflow of the joy in my heart. My mom is here. She is still here. 🖤

yesterday was the first day of spring (THANK GOODNESS) + even though it was cold and dreary here earlier today, this evening ended up being beautiful, the birds are out chirping away and the sunset had me feeling sooooo good 🙌🏼 i’ve been in the best mood, have checked off a million things on my to-do list and have convinced myself that after tomorrow (we’re getting snow 🙄... of course) that it’s officially going to get warm and beautiful and the sun is going to shine consistently again ☀️🌿 wishful thinking? hopefully not! 🙃
also - isn’t it crazy how much the weather effects our moods? like i instantly lose a bad attitude or moodiness when it’s beautiful outside! it can’t be just me! tell me below that i’m not alone! 💛

"The Soviet assault on liberal democratic legitimacy involves a very complex, comprehensive, multifaceted strategy. First, it involves a demonstration of the failure of Western democracies to meet their own standards which are regarded as utopian measuring rods. Second, it proceeds by continuous falsification of Soviet practices and assertions of Soviet loyalty to basic Western values. At the same time that it is suggested that we do not respect our own values, it is claimed by the Soviets that they do. Our flaws are exaggerated, theirs are simply denied. Third, the conclusion is, of course, inexorably arrived at, that there is, at best, not a dime’s worth of difference between these two regimes.⠀
Marxism incorporates, at the verbal level and the intellectual level, the values of liberal democracy in its assault on liberal democracy and this is precisely why it entraps so many Western intellectuals who are themselves serious liberal democrats. Thus the slightest restriction on, let’s say, the presumption of innocence of the accused is said to demonstrate the absence of the rule of law. The slightest failure of an electoral system demonstrates contempt for political equality. Any use of force in international affairs establishes the lawless character of the society. Now, it is a short step from having demonstrated that a country like the United States is not a law-abiding society to demonstrating that it is lost and that it is like any other lawless society. The Soviets can always claim “We are no worse than you. Even if we are a lawless society, you too are a lawless society, we are no worse than you.” This is the “logic” of the doctrine of moral equivalence." ⠀

Is it weird that I still get butterflies before I send my couples their wedding images? Its the final part of the process, that hoping their images will exceed their expectations. Ah!
