Enjoy the moment….not everything needs to be captured in a photo or video. It took me a while to realize that I didn’t have to go sprinting for the camera as soon as every cute little thing happened. Sometimes it’s just better to be still…breath in the moment…and cherish it. I find that sometimes capturing a mental memory is much more meaningful than a still picture.
Often there’s touch, maybe the warmth of Kenley’s hand pressed against my cheek (how I love that); smell, like that of the girls’ freshly washed hair; sound, Layla’s beautiful care-free singing or Kenley’s adamant call for “Momma”; taste, yummm…homemade pancakes made by my favorite cooks, Daddy and Layla, with Kenley supervising (of course); as well as sight, seeing Kenley try to mimic her sister by attempting to put headbands on her head!
True, pictures are wonderful, but sometimes I just want to be in the moment with my family. Rather than hunting for the camera or trying to get the perfect shot, I get to be a participant in what they’re doing. Making those memories with my family reminds me how blessed I am and how much I love my job as a mom! The pay may not be so great, but the benefits…unbeatable! =) Happy memory-making!!!
