I know I usually only post one picture a week, but I had more this time so count it as a bonus. One of my very best friends allowed me the privileged of taking these pictures of her beautiful children. This is my first time to take pictures for somebody else. I must say, I am pretty proud of the shots I was able to get.

Friendship is a wonderful thing. This family, that I took the pictures for, has become like family to us. I appreciate this friendship so much because it is easy and comfortable. The conversation is always good and uplifting. They hold us accountable as we do them. This is a family that we can lay our hearts out before and know that they are praying along with us. They are there when we need them and call when they need us. There is no need to compare or put on masks. Everyone is at ease and comfortable to be completely who they are. This is a family that I look forward to raising our children along side, even if it will be from a distance. They love God in a way that encourages me and I want my children to see. All the things listed above are what friendship is meant to be. Thanks Mounts for being that for us!!

Growing Up

The picture is a little grainy. Overall I like the shot. I have not had as much time as I would have liked to shoot due to the fact that Carter and I have both been sick.

This little boy is almost 20 months old. That means he is almost 4 months away from being 24 months old. For those of you who do not realize the significance of this, it means he will be 2 years old!!! My little fragile infant that I carried around so carefully and watched is every breath is turning into a full fledged romping wild and crazy little boy. Time passes so quickly and Carter is growing up so fast. This got me to thinking about life in general. The years pass by so quickly. I am a few weeks away from my 10 year high school reunion. I can't believe that I have been out of high school for 10 year, am married and have a child. I guess the point of all this is just to say that I have been thinking about life and how quickly it goes and wanting to make the most of it. By make the most of it I mean not wasting it. I don't want to be 95 looking back on my life, assuming I still have a clear enough mind to look back, and realize that I didn't make a difference. I want to know that I was obedient to my calling and that I loved as Christ loves. I want to put others before myself and care about the world more than just the comforts of my own home. Well, there you have it. Not a lot, considering that I was out for 2 weeks, but it is all I have right now.
