Capturing Life

While up at our family reunion in Aspen Grove, my parents gave us an early Christmas present and had our family pictures done by Heather Gibb. The pictures I am sharing are some of my favorites.

I am amazed where my life has taken me and feel blessed to be where I am at. Ten years ago I would not have imagined me happily married and a mother of two beautiful girls. Again, I feel so blessed.

Life can take a person many places. In the short time I have been here on Earth, life has taken me many places. Not necessarily destinations you could go to around the world but personal voyages of experience, heartache, joys, and trials. Some voyages I was asked to go on and gained much needed character from accepting the challenge. Others were taken by my own volition sometimes without any thought on where I would end up. Again, I feel so blessed.

Many of you, I am sure, feel as I do that there is a sense of urgency in capturing our lives especially our children. Memory can so easily fade.

Thank you, Heather, for helping us keep our memories and capturing life.

I LOVE all of the pictures. I have been feeling the same way about my life. I never imagined myself living in Maryland but now that I am here I am loving it. Good luck with your class. I have been thinking about taking some online classes once my kids are both in school.

Isn't it great to reflect on life and see how it all works out the way it is suppose to be, even if you never thought it would. Your family is beautiful. We miss seeing you guys and enjoying your company.
