7 priceless gifts on Thanksgiving Day

Gepubliceerd op Gecategoriseerd als english

In this week of American Thanksgiving, I will change the challenge.
Lately, there has been a 7-day challenge floating around Facebook to post photos seven days in a row—no explanations, just pictures. It was a nice challenge. Many people shared beautiful shots and were challenged to see beauty. But, the challenge was too hard for me for three reasons:

  • You would not think so, probably, but I am very bad with computers, photos, technology, and all that. I need Jelle or our kids to help me. They sometimes get VERY annoyed with me. In making this post, I needed help three times.
  • I have a cheap cellphone because two of my phones have already been stolen. My camera on my now-cheap phone is very poor quality. So, it’s back to the old-fashioned way of making photos—with an actual camera.
  • As you might know. I am very bad at being obedient. If someone sets a rule, I have this deep urge to think how to work creatively with it. My parents and teachers had quite a few challenges in raising me. And, they partly failed in making me obedient.
  • Oh well, there are four reasons—it is just sometimes too hard for me to not use words!

So, I changed the challenge.
Find below seven photos out of our house, seven precious, priceless gifts, some of them home-made, all gotten over the years—some years ago, some just a few days ago, all with their own story.
I change the challenge in a big thank-you for your gifts and invite you to share something priceless from your home.
