This is a fun freebie day for my blog as I want newcomers and veterans to see who I am while not out creating art for others. Everyday is a masterpiece in this home with all the squabbles between the older kids, the new beginnings with Johnny River, and my growing belly with Sadie baby; my wildflower.
I chose to work from home so I’d be the one raising my kids. There are many challenges of running a business from home, as I see since I work from home and take pictures, that’s not a job that is taken serious. But, everyday I am educating myself on how to make my work stand out from the crowd because every person that is on the other side of my camera is capturing a stage in their life that will soon be gone. I take that very serious.
I honestly think if you are good at something–then go after it and be THE BEST. Our society has job statuses all mixed up, each person plays a part in this world. We all have pieces that help the whole world keep moving forward. If you are super good at fixing things, then go be a mechanic even if momma told you to be a zoo keeper. Only YOU will know deep down what you are truly good at. It is my husband and my hearts desire to see each of our kids pursue what they’d be best at and love doing it at the same time.
These truly are the days. I don’t think I will ever look back on my kids childhood and think, man those were some of the longest days of my life. No, rather I think I will say, where did the days go of hearing those innocent giggles, digging holes to China, mom–that’s not fair….. Don’t get me wrong, there are days I am plumb worn out and can’t wait to end my evening with my Oreos and milk with my hubby. But, I wake up everyday ready to take on another one, hoping I am doing my best for each of them.
As much as we want to capture it all, we are going to forget a lot of these sweet days that end our days with weary backs, tired feet, and exhaustion. So, take THIS day, breathe it in and say, these are the days God made me for. Go be the amazing mommy, aunt, daddy, uncle, sister, brother that you know God created you to be.
Because one day those baby eyes will begin noticing there is a whole other world out there other than mom. 😉
