EMW and I were out taking pictures today. It was plenty HOT, but she was in the mood so I jumped at the opportunity to preserve memories of my youngest daughter…as well as…well, I LOVE to play with my camera and the pictures that I take after I get back to my computer. (It is one of my favorite hobbies…)
Well….I played with my pictures for a while on the computer and invited my husband to come and view them. After all, he loves looking at all of the pictures that I take of our girls. We looked at quiet a few together. Going back and forth between the ones that we thought were the best and then we came to the one above. For family and friends that know us well, take a good look at this photo. What do you see? Do you see it???? After looking at the picture for a couple of seconds, Ralph and I both noticed something amazing at the same time. MY reflection is in the window!!!! Eeerie…wouldn’t you say? (Funny thing is, we had JUST had that husband and wife discussion that sounded something like this….”She looks more like me than you!” and “Look at her nose! Who’s nose is that? That’s not yours!” Ha, ha….) Honestly, she is a perfect mixture of both of us, just like ABW is!!!
As we gazed at the reflection in amazement, we began to look deeper into the photo and couldn’t help but notice how good God is to us. He gave us this special person and will provide great potential for her life. She has been a wonderful and supportive sister to ABW and a joy to her father and I. One day, when she is older, when she closes her eyes I hope that she can see a happy childhood filled with lots of love and joy, like ours was… I hope that she can look back at her parents with pride and honor the way we do…. I hope that she will remember who she represents and glorify God the way we try to…… I hope that she will remember how loved she is by all of us!
