December Daily - Day 1

December Daily started yesterday and I was so excited to start (as was my little man). I am creating a digital album that I will be able to upload to Shutterfly and order when I am finished. A part of me is sad that I can't get my hands dirty but I figured I can create a mini later if I want.

I realized that I sometimes have my expectations too high. Yesterday was a great day decorating and enjoying our day together, but today was a little rough around the edges. During our time homeschooling I was the only one singing, reading The Christmas Story, and talking about the true meaning of Christmas. There was just fits and crying... I think there could be days like that for all of us. I think we need to just capture the everyday, even if it isn't pretty all the time.

How would you recommend me documenting today? ;)

Create Well: Document your everyday. Even if it isn't up to your expectations.

  1. I'm sure your shutterfly album will be great. :) and about today? just say what you wrote in the post. snap one picture of something "unpleasant" like a pile of dirty dishes or a heap of laundry or your sulky boy... and journal about it. These are the days that make scrapbooks and journals "real" for the people who read them.

    good luck! :)

  2. I agree with Shaela! Remember also the Christmas story... I am sure Mary and Joseph were worried about a long trip, in order to be registered, so close to full term. Then, Jesus being born in a manger because of there being no more room in the inn. Those don't seem like "perfect" conditions yet God's plan is ideal! Trust Him in the days that are not easy and praise Him saying, "Glory to God in the highest!" (Luke 2:1-7, 14)
