Yesterday I took perhaps my favorite photo I’ve ever taken. It was nothing special. I took it with my phone. I held it up without even looking and snapped a few of Sister talking to her little buddy…a daily occurance. I looked back at them later. This was the first one I snapped:
It’s weird, because something sort of snapped in me too.
I woke up yesterday with a pit in my stomach and a headache and swollen eyes. It’s been another challenging week. As soon as my feet hit the floor I felt an uneasyness. I began my routine of worry, texting friends, looking for answers, not finding any peace. But when I captured this sweet instant yesterday afternoon of Sister loving on her Spring Chick…I knew. That was the moment I knew…the details of life right now are all trifling and anything relevant in my life is just where it should be.
I look at this girl, the look on her face, her in her tutu, and her free spirit. She is such a problem solver. She’s four and she looks at a situation and somehow she just gets it. I see her face in this photo and something just tells me…yes. I have everything. Anything out of place in my life right now is just details…fleeting, ever changing details. I see love on her face. Contentment. Security. Peace. Can you see it?
Thank you, Sophie. You amaze me.
