I had another wonderful weekend. I learned so much this weekend. Well, one thing in particular, which brings me to the title of my post. Foundations.
I posted the dictionary definition at the top, but there are so many other meanings to me. Everything that I think of begins with a strong foundation. When you build a house, the foundation is what anchors the completion of a safe home. When you start a painting, your foundation drives the outcome of the painting. When you are trying to be mobile, whether it be a baby learning to walk, or riding in the car, you must have a solid foundation. The need for a strong foundation is present in everything. I am thankful to have a strong foundation in everything around me. Have you ever thought about what you're standing on, both literally and figuratively?
**I will fill you in on my wonderful weekend later, just wanted to post something quick. Until then Scout and I (well, I am the only one working) are swamped at work!!**
