Do You See What I See?
You know what I've learned since then? It's so important to be in pictures even when there are so many fat rolls that they can't possibly be hidden. When we were gathering pictures for our dad's funerals and you could tell that they were up 20 pounds or down those same 20 pounds, not one person mentioned their weight! We were all too busy discussing where the picture was taken and what we were talking about before or after the shot was snapped or even what we were laughing about or what he could have been saying when the shutter closed and his mouth was open instead of smiling! Pictures are just that, tools to help us remember. I want my kids and future generations to have glimpses of the messy and not just the filtered perfection. Are you IN pictures? Are you filtering too much?
