So posts have been written about memories with your kids. If your kids looked back at the pictures of their life, how many are you in? They might have a lot of pictures of events and activities, but if for some reason you were gone tomorrow, would they know what you looked like today?
I think this is something we should just know, but we don't. I write this blog so one day (when I find a spare couple hundred bucks) I can print it into a nice leather bound book and have it for always for my kids to look back and read. That doesn't necessarily mean that they will find too many pictures of me. The logical part of me says that they will know that I was the one taking the pictures and writing the stories - but my heart just made me cry when I read about the mother who passed away. And even though I should know better, I wish 6 years ago someone had looked at me in the eyes and said "It doesn't matter if you don't look perfect, don't delete that picture!"
So here you go - a little proof in photos that I am here. And this is about as real as it gets - this is a morning. Workout clothes, no makeup, some in pjs, some opting for no pants . . But love . . . Me and the 3 people that are my purpose!
