As a kid I had an unusual curiosity & early appreciation for my family history and where I came from, spending hours upon hours studying our many family photo albums. I was enchanted with the way my parents looked at each other the first day they brought me home from the hospital, the way my Mom would laugh when I would run into her arms for a hug, the way my brother and I would snuggle up on Mom when she was reading us a bedtime story, and the patience & love in Mom’s eyes as she donned a cowboy hat against a hot pink background when all I wanted for my birthday was a “Glamour Shots Photo Shoot” (seriously, where was Classic Kids when I was a kid?!?)….
I am forever grateful to MY inspiring and beautiful Mom who is perfectly imperfect! She is an amazing woman, wife, mother, and now Grandma who may think she sees wrinkles when she smiles, but the only thing I see is the loving sparkle in her eyes and all the years she has laughed and smiled with my brother and me.
(and my Dad made sure of it…way to go Dad!)
…And a BIG CONGRATS to the newest mom in our family! My nephew will never have to wonder how deep his mother’s love runs…he will have an endless picture book of her love over the years…he will see it in her eyes and the way she looks at him, he will see it in the way she loves to hold him and comfort him, he will see it in her smile that explodes with joy because he is hers.
CAPTURE MOM’S LEGACY.
