Each of them brings me unspeakable joy.
Sophie, the oldest, was my first. I watched her being born and captured the first photograph of her.
She became, that photograph did, anyway, a greeting card.
Gracie, known to me as Gracie-Bell, was second. I didn’t witness her birth as she decided to create all kinds of drama.
She, like her older sister, is a drama queen.
Gracie has Down’s Syndrome but lives life as though it will end tomorrow. She’s a character and, as you may have imagined, a greeting card as well.
Life happens as it happens and as it does, I capture it.
It’s what I do.
My daughter, for instance, was a music education major. She’s chosen a different path, yet still found herself on a greeting card.
My dad, an inspiration to me though we often butted heads, is my mentor. Guess what? Yep, a greeting card.
In that life is magnificence.
Time passes, life goes on, memories fade.
Enjoy each moment for there will come a time when nothing, except memories, remain.
Family. Friends. Creation. Life.
Nothing matters more.
