Two things I've done Right in my life...

I did this newborn shoot a couple of weeks ago for a friend. I was editing the pictures and a newborn always reminds me innocence, even the natural smell of them shouts innocence and purity to me. They should bottle it up...the smell would sell like hotcakes! It also reminds me of how dependant my kids are on me. Just watching the Mom take care of this little guy...his comfort, his nutrition, is all dependant upon her.

I think we have children to teach us lessons...of patience, joy, tribulations, obedience, excitement and what our parents had to go through. We have them so we know what our Heavenly Father goes through, if just a little bit, watching us go through life on Earth. We begin to understand his lessons, we begin to understand consequences, and we begin to understand the complete and utter joy of the success of it all or what it could be.

My daughter taught me how much I really am a BIG part of her little life just recently:

My cell phone rings and I pick it up:
PeePs: Mom, when you come home? (I had just seen her an hour ago)
Me: I'm coming in a little bit honey! (Said a little frustrated)
PeePs: Mom come home I miss you, I wuv you! Come home.
Me: Okay honey, I'm coming home.

So if I die tomorrow...there is TWO things that I have done right and they are pictured below! Have a good rest of the SUNDAY!
