Slices of Life @ Two Writing Teachers
Thanks Stacey and Ruth for supporting this writing opportunity!
I am looking at everything differently as a writer...
As I put up the Christmas tree and the whole family joined in to help, my heart filled with cheer! Everyone worked together to join in fanning the branches for the tree including little Nat. We all laughed as she stole daddy's gloves and put them on her hands to try and be like everyone else! Kam knew just when to hand me the Angel. And then, the big test-how would it look when the lights were off and only the tree was lit? PERFECT!
The next day, we added the ornaments onto the tree...as I looked at the process with writers eyes, I noticed something special about all of the ornaments that were added. They told the story of our lives together! I never really paid this much attention to the pictorial history of the ornaments. So I grabbed my phone and snapped some pictures as a timeline of our lives...
Here are some of those snapshots...

Wearing the writer's lenses makes me see life differently these days...I am thankful for this vision as it's a blessing to notice these details. What details do you notice with "writer's eyes"?Two Writing TeachersTwo Writing Teachers
