Life can be so complicated, the hustle and bustle of everyday traumas can make us lose focus about what is truly important or what is only a momentary setback or crisis. They say everything happens for a reason and you should never brush aside anyone or anything as insignificant - for there is a lesson that can be learned!
Well I learned my lesson ... spread myself a bit too thin yesterday and hustled and bustled all day! And when it was time to leave home for the Family Annual St. Patrick's Day Party (after I burned the bacon for the traditional Irish Colcannon recipe), I had no time to grab the camera case with a new disc for the camera. Thought I could squeeze on just a few more treasured memories. Well squeeze I did and the poor Sony was chugging along pretty slow at our 2nd Party, Patti's 45th Birthday Party but we got some great pictures of Patti after she won her 'Birthday' pool game. We agreed they would be perfect pictures for her husband, Paul ... until I powered up the camera when I got home and got an error message, "REPAIRING DATA", and those perfect pictures were gone! They weren't repaired, they were chewed up, and GONE! I so wanted those pictures back and tried everything ... but they are gone!
Lesson's I learned ...
Here are a few pics from Patti's party that managed to stay, we'll just have to get together again and take more pics!
- get organized and be prepared
- learn from your mistakes
- and as my Mom would always say, "don't sweat the small stuff"
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATTI!
