My Miracle

This is Throwback Week on Facebook.  I spent a few hours going through some old photo albums and album boxes and pulling out some of my faves.  I posted between fifty and sixty photos yesterday. In the 24 hours following, I got over 200 comments from friends on the photos.  So many people took a little trip down memory lane, and it was, in a word, a miracle.

This is my life.  These photos are a representation of who I was and how I got to the place I landed today.  Each photo is a moment.  A moment that at the time, I deemed worthy of capturing in a photograph.  I never dreamed that I'd have a chance to sit down with the subject of each photograph ever again, much less than the dozens of people I had a chance to sit down and share them with virtually.  It's a miracle.  I am so lucky to have been given this opportunity, and still a little overwhelmed at the power of social networking.

It's my Bits and Pieces premise.  That I am made up of the bits and pieces of each person who touched my life.  Today, I'm reminded of that, and I'm grateful.

Beautifully said. I've been reading through some of the comments and even though I was of a younger crowd, it's still so much fun! Love the photos... Ellen is so sweet. :)
