I see "not photogenic."
I see weight to loose and stubborn pimples and a bad angle.
But you know what my son sees?
The night he drove his first car- on the race track at Disney World.
And his mom there with him, sharing in the Best Night Ever.
("Mom, now that you know I can drive one of these, you really should buy me one.")
And you know what? I'm learning to see things more like my son sees.

Moms, it is so easy to be hard on ourselves, especially as we struggle with our weight and our health. It is easy to see ourselves AS those struggles (and failures!) It is tempting to hide, hide from public, or at least hide from the camera, until we lose that weight or fix that problem.
But our children and those who love us-- they care far less than we do about all that.
They want to be with us now-- to make memories with us, now.
They love us now, extra weight and pimples and all.
They love us, now. Today.
Remember this, friends, as you work to get healthier.
You are lovely, loved.
So, please, just get in the picture.

Get in the picture!!!
|My big boy forgot to be a big boy on the bus, |
and he fell asleep in my arms like a little baby.
So glad I was there to hold him.
I'd love to see some of your pictures this week!
Do you hide from the camera?
