I am so sore! I shot a wedding yesterday with a 70-200 F/2.8 and my arms…are….sooooo…hurty. I was right, that is too much glass for me. On a different note. I loved it. It’s not my lens, it’s Dan’s, but it technically partially mine because I was the one who talked him into it. SUCKER. I had two camera’s going with the black rapid strap I got for Christmas and the other on the one that Lester had made for me. His strap was so much better.
I’m so happy right now with the direction of my life. When they say that God closes a door for a reason they weren’t kidding.
I knew that from the beginning that I was going to have to forgive to be able to move forward and able to see the good that was coming. The only way I was going to get through it was to let go of all that I have been resisting and just find my faith again. I prayed, “Dear God, take that image and replace it with something beautiful.” Instantly I had an image of a path with a stack of rocks. When running that is the path you want to be on and it means you are going the right direction. So whenever I had that nasty image invade my brain and want to eat me alive, I INSTANTLY remembered, “i’m on a path, i’m on the right path, this is where I need to be.” and I had faith in God that he would give me something else and he did. I made it through that part.
Yesterday I had a great day surrounded by people in love. People ready to pledge the rest of their life to someone else. To become one with another person.
I should have been a little bit bitter, but I wasn’t.
At one point I checked my phone and I had a bunch of messages from friends telling me they loved me and asking me how my day was going. My friend Victoria was giving me airport / plane / landed texts.
On the way home I had a friend call me and I swear I almost cried when he asked, “How was your day? Tell me about it…”
I have been waiting for someone to ask me that question for a long time.
My Day was awesome…thanks for asking.
