Friday Ramblings // northeast, tx lifestyle and portrait photographer

Hey there everybody! How are y'all? How's your week been? Good? 
That's wonderful; glad to hear it!
Anywho, just wanted to remind you that Thanksgiving is just around the corner. A week from yesterday to be exact. So now is the perfect time to start thinking about all the many things you are thankful for. 
There should be a gazillion. 
Believe me.
Even if you've been having a rough time lately. Everything that happens to us is an absolute blessing whether we realize it or not. God pours soooo much grace and mercy out on all of us daily...even if-- no scratch that, in spite of the fact that we don't deserve it. We don't deserve anything but Hell...anything above that is, you guessed it, a blessing! often I forget that! For those who are children of God, the blessings will never end. Never...even into eternity. For those who are outside of God, the blessings will end when they do, and they will get what they truly deserve. For eternity. No more mercy. God could choose to take everything away from us at anytime and still be supremely just, so let us be grateful for all things as long as He sees fit to let us be stewards of them.
I'm thinking about making a list of 99 things I'm thankful for, just off the top of my head. That would be a good reminder for that I speak of it, if I follow through with such a plan would y'all like to see such a list? 
Well, too bad...I'm gonna post it on Thanksgiving anyways. ;)
By the way, I'm pretty sure that those Indians that exchanged warm-fuzzy-feel-good-friendly-thankful feelings with the Pilgrims at the very first Thanksgiving dinner didn't have blond hair and blue eyes. But I'm pretty sure that they weren't near as cute as these Indians. 
In fact...I'm daring enough to be positive that they couldn't have been even remotely as adorable as this.
Or this. 
Definitely not this.
For surely. 
Mmmmm...yummy light :)
Absotively Posolutely.Hunter-Gatherers. Mushrooms anyone?
Gotta keep them headdresses on...they tend to slip.
The real deal Injuns couldn't even have topped this...what do you call this? Vicious? 
There we go. 
Now, all of you go watch Chocaponus...I mean, Pocahontas. Even if its not entirely historically accurate. Yeah, she wasn't really in love with John Smith in real life. might've added a little bit of Hollywood interpretation there, Disney. ;)

In other news, my dogs like to be photogenic sometimes. I see them sitting angelically beside one another. Actually angels are white shining sinless creatures with firey eyes so I'm pretty sure my dogs have never looked like. [crickets chirping] What was I saying? Oh yeah, sometimes I look outside and see my dogs sitting sweetly beside one another with faces that seem to literally scream "Photo Moment!" I run off...actually its probably more like a jog...alright, we'll settle for brisk walk, fair enough? I grab my camera and by the time I get back I see this. Well they're still close to each other.  But then...
Thanks Daisy. Thank you very much. 
She finds it hilarious. Go figure. 
Did you guys know that I had a pet chinchilla? Me neither.
 Maybe a fruit bat. Yep. Definitely more like a fruit bat.
 It's okay Layla, I feel your pain.
Well, I guess I'll see you all on Thanksgiving...maybe sooner...we'll see. :)
