I just loved the picture on this card. I wanted pictures like this. I wanted to preserve the s w e e t n e s s that was my children at that moment. Because it is really hard to capture sometimes...it is easy to focus on the things that are exhausting and difficult instead of the things that give you so much joy that you think your heart will burst. I knew that I would one day look back at this time of my life and it would be the most lovely.
I tucked this card in my wallet. I had recently had professional pictures taken...there was some posing...and some props...and an uncooperative 2 year old. I wasn't exactly thrilled. But I could NOT afford to do it again...at least not anytime soon.
I would pull the card out occasionally...to look at the picture...and to be certain that I still had it. I wanted to be sure that when I was able I would remember Amy.
And I did.
Yup...that's me...the one with the bursting heart.
Amy writes a blog too...where you can find her beautiful pictures and just as lovely prose.
Thank you Amy...for a lot more than the pics.
