But my VERY generous mother in law got us a new digital camera with all the bells and whistles for Christmas this year and it amazingly holds 522 pictures before the card is full.
Unfortunately I can’t seem to get out of the habit of being hesitant to take pictures. I really have to force myself to snap away and take chances with my camera.
A few days ago I went against all my instincts and decided to drag my camera along all day, whether at home or away, and just snap pictures of things I found value in.
And when I came home and viewed all my photos I found that they were all full of a man.
A man who loves McDonald’s ice cream cones and wrestles with his kids. A guy who can spend hours perfecting an e-mail to a friend but doesn’t hesitate to jump to my assistance when I come barging into his office in tears because the kids are driving me crazy. A guy who got me Chinese food and specifically shaped ice cubes at strange hours during four pregnancies. A guy who makes mistakes and is humble enough to confess.
And I’m just feeling a bit thankful for him today.
