All Things New and Fresh

the-write-way

It’s March 20 and for many people, this is a day they have been dreaming of.  The first day of spring.  The promise of warmer weather, flowering trees, and the chance to start fresh.  I may not get to experiences “spring” where I live, but I still love the idea of all things new and fresh.  Spring has a way of coming in and bringing with it a wave of fresh air and fresh ideas.  I just love it!

Our life is filled with times that are “new and fresh.”  Spring.  A new baby.  A new home.  A change in jobs.  A start of a healthier lifestyle. A fresh coat of paint.  Things that are new always mark the change  in our path of life.  Whether these changes are big and beautiful or hard and filled with trouble, they are part of our story.  And they need to be shared.

For today’s, “THE WRITE WAY” I encourage you to create a layout about something new and fresh in your life.  Maybe you have snapped a photo of the first flowers popping their head up.  Maybe you are welcoming a new child into your family.  Maybe your oldest is getting ready to graduate and move away from home.  Whatever it is, stop and share the story.

Here is a page I did talking about the newness of my oldest not being the only girl in the family anymore.  I wanted to remember the transition she made from being our only baby girl to being “the big sister” to two brothers AND a new sister.  It was a change in our life and I wanted to record it.
