Who I am today...


I don't have as many photos of myself as I used to. I'm usually the one with the camera. However, my faithful husband has evidently been making a point of preserving my image for posterity. I looked at this photo and recoiled at first. No make-up. Looking a little pale and tired. Old t-shirt. Tired hair. Then I reconsidered my perspective. This IS who I am and what I look like almost every day. Can I live with that? I can. I can see something worth preserving in that image...at least for the sake of my children who love me. They do love me and this is how they will remember me.
