***PLEASE PAUSE MUSIC ABOVE BEFORE WATCHING/LISTENING…THIS SONG…so sweet!!!***
I heard this song on the radio while cruisin’ in the mini-van this week…and just had to put it to pictures. We were playing all day yesterday outside…blowing bubbles…not saying much at all—and I RAN inside to grab my camera to capture the moment.
About 5 years ago, I started my photography business—and I loved it. I would shoot 2 days a week…but soon—I realized that even 2 days…even if it was just for a few hours in the morning…was just too much time away from them. It goes by so quickly—and I don’t want to miss one single moment. I closed my business in November when we got put on our agency’s waitlist…and now–I’m capturing my babies only:). And…I LOVE IT. No, it’s not always easy being a stay-at-home mommy (especially when there are babies who nap in the morning and afternoon and you are literally homebound)…but I feel like I should often pinch myself to see if I’m dreaming…because there is no other place I’d rather be. As we
patiently😉 wait for travel dates…I can’t believe some times that I’m this blessed to be a mommy of 4 children 5 and under. One…followed by another and another and another.
We were looking at pictures this week of more and more and more babies in orphanages that need homes. A few hours later I got a list from an orphanage in Uganda with the details of this month’s 20 or so new babies…where they are from…and how they were found. My heart…breaks…because those babies deserve “blowing bubbles experiences” like these…and they deserve a mommy and daddy to help give them wings. I sat there beside my hubby—looked at him and said, “Oh Rich…can we bring home another?” And I catch myself…already dreaming again…but this time–of her. I pray one day we can grow…again. But for now–I’m really, really, really itching for travel dates to get Isaac home. But until my phone rings…I’m relishing the moments…
May your heart be refreshed as you enjoy the moments. May the Lord give you strength to pour into the children He has given you…to love them through HIS love. And you ultimately feel His love as you love them.
Have a blessed weekend.
