So, I know its just now Thanksgiving... however I cant help but feel the spirit of Christmas sneaking up in my heart! I LOVE Christmas.... The twinkle of lights in the dark reflecting off the snow covered ground... its truly magical. As a society we've turned Christmas into a shopping frenzy and kind of taken the true meaning out of this special day. I struggle with this myself... making sure I get a gift for everyone, but in the midst of all the chaos I see my boys, my husband, my beautiful mother and strong father among the rest of my very loved family and I remember how blessed I am. I remember that Christ was born and He changed the course of not only history, but my life. I have a greater purpose than just buying someone a material gift.
God gave me a talent... its a talent that I try to use to the best of my ability. My talent is capturing time, memories... the twinkle in your eye or the love between two people... the innocence of a child. A moment in time. I don't believe that I can throw this away or just give up.. this is the gift I was given and I plan on using it to its fullest extent. I pull my camera out randomly to try and catch the everyday blessed moments of my own children, the things that are forgotten as time passes. Like the way their little hands look as they pull their toys trains across the floor making a "Whooo-Whooo" sound, or how they play in the rain and end up dancing butt naked in it! My teenager as he tries to block it all out... lol.Those moments are priceless and I'm trying to find a way to work that into the memories I provide you with.
I was originally posting this blog to announce the gift certificates that will be going on sale soon, but then it got way to deep to do that. I just want each and every one of you to enjoy today, who you are today because tomorrow, everything changes :)
