Daffy days

You've gotta wonder why you have some things...like this crazy daffy duck mug. It's one of Savannah's favorites. We probably picked it up at a garage sale or something. I was looking around for something interesting to draw and came to find this sitting next to a stack of dirty dishes that Jasmin had neatly left on the counter for me. I used my artistic license to leave the crusted-on food out of my drawing. I love Daffy's expression - because some days I feel just like he looks!
After spending a half hour looking through Danny Gregory's published online journal pages, I feel inspired. There is so much to draw and to record about ordinary things that happen everyday. Even crazy mugs full of dirty spoons can be a fun subject to draw and can express something about my state of mind. I love the title of his journal, "Everyday Matters." Because everyday does matter. I have good days and great days and horrible days just like everyone else. But it reminds me that no day is a waste. Even when everything seems to go wrong, I should be looking for the good things that happen and for where God is working around me.

I loved the Daffy duck entry. And I loved the way you expressed your feelings about life and how we look at it. Way too many people don't see beauty in everyday things. I'm glad you do and shared it with me. You are really inspiring me to do more creative things. Maybe even start a journal of my own.
