Life is the perfect picture.

This is a picture of my two girls this past Christmas.
This is their idea of a nice picture for Mom.


They hate taking pictures.

Or should I say, they LOATHE taking pictures.

It's like pulling teeth with these two.

I constantly have to fight with them to get a descent picture.

You know, one without the bunny ears behind their heads, the rolling eyes or the carcastic, bothered half grin.


I try to plead with them to give me a good picture, so that I can look back on them one day, when the house is empty and gaze into their pretty faces.
( I like to plan ahead.)

But no.
They give me no sympathy, until I practically cry for a good picture, then I am so mad by that time, I don't want to take it at all!!

Can I catch a break here?!!

What's a mother to do?

I was going through my pictures on my laptop this morning, when I found this picture of them.

It was during one of my attempts to get a good picture of them together at Christmas time.
I almost cried.
(Shocking I know.)

It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

It's a picture of my girls at their best.

A real picture of fun and togetherness.
A true picture of life.

It shows their God given goofiness.

That makes me smile.

Who needs posey pictures?

This one is perfect!
I think I might print it and frame it.

Last night, I fell asleep listening to them laughing and giggling, as they watched a movie together, with a friend that was over.
It was music to my ears.

I wish I had a picture of that.


Picture it well.

It's right in front of you.

John 10:10
"...I came that you may have and enjoy life in
abundance, to the full, until it overflows!"

Be blessed!
