We were missionaries in thin air: Quito, Ecuador, elev. 9500 ft. but we moved to Manitoba. It is our family's first time living in Canada - the 4th country we have lived in. The blog title is in part from the "thin air" in Quito. More than that it is a reflection of life as a true Jesus-loving Christian. Sometimes the air is a little "thin" in life. We need to deeply breathe of God and His Goodness, Faithfulness, Righteousness, Grace, Patience...the list goes on.
I have been feeling rather crappy lately - again, yes, but for different reasons than usual.
This photo of me will help explain (excuse the pajamas)....
Uh, ya - shock and awe.
We are in shock and awe too.
Because of my age and all, I thought it would be best to wait to make an announcement - to make sure everything is healthy and all that. And then it seemed that it would make it more fun for us to use this method of communication instead of making a bunch of phone calls.
We won't go into feelings and emotions quite yet. That still needs to simmer a while.
To get me in the right frame of mind, however, I had the opportunity to photograph a newborn.
Little baby Graham - three weeks old.
He was so sweet and amazingly handsome for one so young.
He was wide awake most of the time, but he finally did sleep.
What a little angel.
And the happy family: Roberto, Cameron and baby Graham.
They are such a sweet and happy family. Love them.
And the cute little heart with the hands photo.....
If that little guy won't get you in the right frame of mind for a lot of photography, what will. And that is the frame of mind I am in - I have a lot of photo shoots coming up.
Oh, and back to the announcement - I guess I never did formally make it, did I.
I have been extremely bloated lately.
So bloated, in fact, that it makes me look 4 - 5 months pregnant.
Gross - looking and feeling. Not sure what is going on, but don't worry, I'm not that gaseous all the time.
Update: Let me be perfectly clear - I am NOT pregnant!!!
I apparently have sent my friends and family into a frenzy......
If you want to pass on that "announcement", just tell people to come and visit this blog post. :o)
