being simple: a lack of complexity, complication, embellishment, or difficulty
There are days...
Where life just cannot get crazier.
When I seem forgetful
and out of sync
(like the day I totally forgot it was "bring a picture of your pet" to school day)
There are days where if the kids are fed and clean by 8pm
I am a happy girl!
Or I had 5 minutes to just cuddle with one of them
I am a very happy girl!
There are days I don't talk to my husband...
I might "talk" to him
But it consists of reminders, tasks, and other mundane things.
There are days
where I worry
If my kids get enough of ME
(then I quickly realize that they can never have enough)
There are days where I worry
that the next 9 years will go just as fast as the first
and my oldest will be 18.
There are days I worry
If I am good enough...
If I deserve it all
And where this is all taking me.
And then there are days
where a single look from my husband
tells me how much we know each other.
A hug from my daughter
tells me she understands that everything I do
Every appointment I have
Every meeting I go to
Every late night in front of the computer
is showing her that
You have to work hard for something you want
There are days
when I get the perfect shot of them
not posed or dressed perfectly
but perfectly captures their relationship
days where life seems simple
where things fall into place
and riding bikes outside is the main activity for the day.
These days might happen few and far between
But they are the ones that keep me going
that re-energize me
that make me think that life is...
I realize that by focusing on the complexity, I am totally missing the simplicity.
I want to spend more time documenting the amazement that is
living my life.
Capturing moments of nothing
and documenting my family's life...
Because at the end of the day
they keep me grounded
they motivate me to be better
and they are who I do it all for.
So for today's blogpost...
No Pictures at all
Because although pictures say a thousand words...
Sometimes words say it all too
