If Wishes Were Raindrops

(c) Misty DawnS

I knew the new macro filters I had ordered were going to be delivered Thursday. I had checked Friday's weather forecast, and it promised to be a beautiful day. So, I himmed, and I hawed, and I himhawed, and I finally decided that I needed a "Me Day". So, I told my boss I wanted the day off.

Let me tell you, I don't regret it one bit. It was a fantastic day, and I desperately needed it. In fact... may I have tomorrow off too? Oh wait, you don't have the authority to approve that... bummer.

It's funny how a little bit of time to yourself can turn your thoughts around. I really needed that ME time. If you're struggling with feeling overwhelmed, depressed, alone and/or frustrated, I strongly suggest taking some time for you... doing what it is you love best or a combination of several of the things you enjoy most... and don't allow yourself to feel guilty. There is no need to feel guilty, because taking care of your emotional health is a necessity

That's it.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend and a fantastic Mother's Day.

As I can't afford the macro lens I covet I have ordered some macro filters and am hoping they will arrive soon. I can't wait to try them out - seeing your photo makes me even more eager to get my hands on them!

Lovely shot and yes, every now and again we all need me time and some time to just get out and do what we love.

One of the things I enjoy most is looking at floor plans, which I haven't done in a long time, so I am having a lovely time with your manufactured homes link.
I think I would have liked to be an architect specializing in home plans. Such fun! Thanks, Misty.

You never bug me and this is a magical image, sweet girl. I know what you mean about the ME time. It's so important and I'm glad you found some. I know I'm a little behind and I am planning to catch up this week. Thank you for your patience and for always being so supportive. I'm heading over to flickr to see if I can fave a few.;-) xo
