30 day blog journal: day 7....

Today's Topic: A Photo that Makes Me Happy....

This is haaaaaaaard!  I love, love, love taking pictures!  (*side note* I am a horrible photographer.  I am probably one of the few people in the world that still cuts off heads/arms/scenery even when using an SLR camera.  You'd think I was using one of those disposable kodak cameras....) Anyway...I never took too many pictures before Libbi was born, but now I have joined the ranks of the paparazzi (I'm so proud!) ;0) I think Libbi assumed I had a lens attached to my face for the first two months of her life.

I could literally post tons, because so many of the pictures I have make me feel happy for one reason or another, but I tried to narrow it down to just a few.

The first picture that makes me happy is one I took of my MawMaw and Grandad at a wedding.  I don't remember exactly when this was taken, but it was pre-baby, pre-marriage for me so it was at least 4 years ago.   I was sitting behind them and saw my Grandad put his arm around MawMaw.  To me, this picture just embodies love and commitment.  It makes me happy because I have seen this love first hand and I know how true it is.  It makes me happy, because it reminds me that when love is built on a solid foundation it can withstand the test of time.

The second picture that makes me happy is of Jeffrey and Libbi.  It shows a happy baby and a happy daddy, which makes for one happy momma. ;0)  This was when Libbi was just starting to "play" with us and we would literally sit on the couch forever and just talk to her and laugh and laugh.  This picture also reminds me of how much Libbi and Jeffrey look alike! ;) Plus, I can't help but smile when I count her rolls of back fat!

The third and final picture (for this post) that makes me happy is a picture that was taken at Cracker Barrel by some random man. :)  We had met my parents for breakfast on a Saturday morning (11/01/08) to tell them that we were pregnant.  The last time we had told them we were pregnant, we also had to tell them that we had miscarried.  This time was much more joyful.  This picture makes me happy, because it reminds me of how excited we all were about the promise of things to come and that our God is always faithful.
