Here, I want to take a picture! Smile!
A couple of things have happened lately that have me thinking about photographs. Father's Day is coming up and I made a scrapbook of my mother for my Dad. She hated having her picture taken and it shows. I was able to find only 15 or 16 pictures of Mom from her 56 years of living. It made me sad to realize that I had very few visual images Mom to share with my children and grandchildren.
The second thing that happened was trying to find a picture of myself to put on this blog. Guess what? There aren't very many picutres of me either. Now, I am not photogenic at all, but I've decided that it is selfishness and pride on my part not to allow my family to take pictures of me. I want my granchildren and even my great-grandchildren to be able to look into my eyes in a photograph and remember that I prayed for them before they were even born.
