Recently, Steve and I took a very dear friend to Pittsburgh for surgery, which, thankfully, was successful. The patient is recovering at home, healthy and happy. While there, I took the opportunity to enjoy a special holiday drink from Starbucks while we waited. I say special because we do not have a Starbucks anywhere near our home, so it is a real treat. Madison texted me and asked if I had gotten a coffee, so I quickly snapped this photo...
~ The little table in the waiting room, my purse, my coffee, an old pack of tissues I found at the bottom of my bag, Steve's work papers and his highlighter, and a bottle of Tylenol I picked up at the hospital pharmacy for sinus headaches ~
Then I thought about how if I were going to post my coffee on social media, I would certainly take a much different photo. So I snapped this one and sent it to Madison...

SOCIAL MEDIA LIFE
This is just a reminder that most things we see when we scroll are carefully planned, scripted, curated, and filtered images. So when I get the urge to compare myself and my home to them, I stop. And think of what they really are. Inspiration for possibilities. I can linger, or I can scroll. Up to me, right?
Have a lovely Wednesday, my friends!!!
