Today I'm thankful for my camera. I'm not even close to the best photographer in the world, but I do love to take pictures. I capture moments in time that mean something to me. There was an emotion behind the lifting of the camera to my eye.
I look back and see how many photos I have of my mom when she was little and then of me when I was little and then look at the HUGE files of digital photos of my kids on my computer. WOW! But then again, I don't want them to forget what they did or how they might have felt.
I put together a book for my nieces and nephews just after my sister passed away. One thing I vowed then was to never shy away from a camera. I know I'll never be my best when the photo is taken, but my kids won't care because it is real and it was their mom.
One of the things I do is share my photos. After an event that my kids were at with a bunch of other people, I go home download them and then share with the other families.
Here are some of the photos I kind of like. They kind of capture my heart and my mind.
