A Gentle Reminder

Sometimes, I get really interested in something to the point I lose perspective and get all wrapped up in the not-so-important things in life. Fortunately for me, God often takes those opportunities to remind me of what is most important. 

I've recently taken up photography as a hobby.  My husband bought me a new camera as an early Christmas present last fall, and since then, I've been snapping pictures everywhere. LOTS of pictures.  On Easter Sunday alone, I took over 260 pictures.  That may not seem like a lot for some folks, but for me, it really is. I've been so immersed in learning this new hobby of mine that I tend to focus more on taking pictures of my family than on actually enjoying my family.  These two pictures are among my favorites that I took that day. Something about them just speaks to me.

I'm a little biased, I know.  What mother doesn't feel that way about pictures of her kids? 

A friend of mine told me that one day, I'd look at that bottom photo and just cry a river. I'm sure I will. I sort of already do. Even with all the teenage drama at my house, I wouldn't trade being their mom for anything in the world.

(I could use a little less drama, but you gotta take the good with the bad, right?)

I had these enlarged and will be framing them soon. More photos to come.

  1. I found you through SITS and I just wanted to compliment you on your photo taking skills! These are beautiful! I'm always very envious of those who can point and click and have magic appear through the lens. Great job :)
